Botanical Garden: ‘Moore’ ends, ‘Orchid Daze’ begins Feb. 6

Before you stake your claim on a spot for the Peach Drop, please scoot over to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for the last day of “Moore in America.”

I understand that “go see a garden” is not a reasonable command when it’s sleeting outdoors. For more convincing, check out this post from October, which links to more reviews and stories about it. I wrote that post when the show was first scheduled to end. It was extended through the end of the year, but now we really have to say good-bye. (This will also be the last chance to see the Garden’s holiday displays and families might dig the New Year’s Across the Globe event today, too.)

So what comes next? The Botanical Garden’s annual orchid show, “Orchid Daze,” returns, this time with a “Towers of Flowers” theme. Here are some photos from last year’s show. It opens Feb. 6 and runs through April 11.

Want to go? “Moore in America” ends Dec. 31.  Atlanta Botanical Garden. 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays through October, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays November-March. $5-$16. 1345 Piedmont Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 404-876-5859, www.atlantabotanicalgarden.org.
