Imaginary Worlds at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Imaginary Worlds: Plants Larger Than Life, is a fantastic exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The exhibit contains more than one hundred thousand plants which come together to form 19 living sculptures. This is the first exhibit of its kind in the United States. The plant sculptures are made with a centuries old technique called mosaiculture, and each piece is a living sculpture. Presented at the gardens are a unicorn,a shaggy dog, fish that spout water,a huge earth goddess and much more! You won't want to miss this wonderful event at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

This painting is by my great uncle, painter Bill Draper.  On this Memorial Day I would like to offer immeasurable thanks to all of the men and women who have died in service to our country.
