Each time there is a major exhibit at Atlanta Botanical Garden, it seems that they acquire a permanent installation to remind people of what had been there before.  One of the biggest pieces from Chihuly in the Garden (2016) – the yellow-orange neon column called “Saffron Tower” is still in place.  It stands at the end of a beautiful reflecting pool which is planted with an array of flowers.  Most of these are prominently marked but for some reason, I couldn’t find a tag for this one.

The beautiful pink flowers were not very tall but they were just reaching out for the sun and I loved the way the light was rimming the buds hanging beneath the open blossom.

If anyone know what the name of this one is, I would love to know.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
