Chihuly in the Garden
If you haven't done so already, make plans to visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden before the end of October. That's when the one-of-a-kind exhibition called "Chihuly in the Garden" is set to end. The exhibit features the stunning glass artwork of Dale Chihuly displayed in the garden's plant collections. The Atlanta Botanical Garden will be open late on Tuesday nights, so you can watch how the appearance of the glass is transformed as daylight is replaced by dramatic nighttime lighting.


Garden Design
Take time this fall to assess your landscape -- what you like, what you don't like, what you'd like to see in the future. Then consult The Essential Garden Design Workbook, by Rosemary Alexander (Timber Press, 2004; $34.95), for help in planning the changes you want. This book includes instructions for drawing landscape designs and is geared toward helping homeowners achieve a designer look without the cost of hiring one.
