ATLANTApix: ABG Tulips

Atlanta Blooms! at the Atlanta Botanical Garden
Atlanta Blooms! at the Atlanta Botanical Garden
Today marks the official beginning of the Atlanta Botanical Garden's first annual Atlanta Blooms! exhibition...and they're beautiful. I stopped by a few days ago for a preview and quite a few of the nearly 200,000 bulbs, including 70,000 tulips (photo) are blooming or are on the verge of blooming.

Given today's sunny weather forecast, I hope the Garden sees a record number of visitors. This is definitely a get-it-while-it's-hot exhibition...the bulbs will only last so long and this is a sight you really want to see.

I will be stopping by tomorrow for the first official day...and I'm sure I'll be by at least a time or two more throughout the exhibition, which runs through April. And there's a special "Blooms & Bubbly" event on Thursday evening, April 7, 2011.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
