ATLANTApix: Frogs in the Garden

Frogs at the Atlanta Botanical Garden
As April comes to a close, the Atlanta Botanical Garden's first annual Atlanta Blooms! exhibition does as well. But, blooms are in full force throughout the are frogs!

I've seen so many frogs in the Garden lately that I feel I'm developing a fondness for the creatures...the Garden's amphibian research is a likely contributor to that fascination, as is the sighting of frogs in several gardens within the Garden.

I was at the Atlanta Botanical Garden earlier this week and passed by the boy-with-frogs fountain, in the Perennial Garden, and right there before me was a giant frog in the water! (photo, lower left)

And did you know that there's a daily frog feeding at the Garden? It takes place in front of the Fuqua Conservatory every day at 11:00 a.m. It's a great event for seeing some of the Garden's frogs, in part because feeding time is their most active time of day.

So, in addition to the human-size frogs throughout the Garden, there are lots of real ones to be sighted as well.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
