Botanical Gardens in the winter of Atlanta

I have never thought much about going to a botanical gardens in the winter months.  It seemed like it would be a waste of time and money.  Recently, Ashley was offered some free admission for her, myself and Kaleigh.  We went and to my surprise there were some pretty unique things to the winter months.

Much of the botany was dead but it left some stark images behind.  Huge bushes with a single flower remaining or even just dead flowers that had not decayed.  It was also a fairly private walk through since most people do not visit the gardens in the winter either.

The three of us had a fun day, despite an abrupt ending.  We had a mostly fill reign of the place and saw very few other people.  It was a day of playing, talking about plants and Kaleigh and I even found a few opportunities to raise some mischief.
