ATLANTApix: A Purple Cactus...plant or cocktail?

This bright purple flowering cactus (photo) caught my attention, and fascination, on a recent visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden (yes, it’s true, I’m there a lot). It was also on this visit that I noticed that there is a lot in bloom in the Desert House of the Fuqua Conservatory…the most blooms I’ve ever seen in there.

Speaking of the Garden, their Cocktails in the Garden program started up again just last week. Throughout the summer and early fall, visitors to the Garden can enjoy a libation while strolling through the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

It's the perfect setting for a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city or, even better, it can serve as a beautiful setting for a romantic date.

I don't know if they serve a beverage called "Purple Cactus," but you can always ask. And if you're there next week, Thursday, May 19, you'll be treated to special performances by the Atlanta Opera!

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