scarecrows and banjos and gardens, oh my!

Every fall, I make sure to plan a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for their annual “Scarecrows in the Garden” event. To me, it’s the epitome of fall’s arrival… TONS of scarecrows decorated by people and organizations from all over the community, pumpkins, seasonal ales, great weather, and banjo music!  I actually got two exhibits for the price of one, because the gorgeous, huge living sculptures from “Imaginary Worlds” were still on display.

Fun evening with some of my puppet coworkers::

Such a lovely way to wind down October and get ready for the holidays – and cold weather!  There’s just one week left for both of these displays, so be sure to visit soon if you’re in Atlanta!
