{Go Ask Alice} Memphis Botanic Garden

I was really excited when I got these film scans back!

These photos were taken in May of 2022. We were supposed to be going to the Memphis Botanic Garden’s “Alice’s Adventures at the Garden” exhibit as a birthday outing for our friend Mallory, but she got sick and couldn’t attend. She was really adamant that the four of us still go, so we honored her wishes and went to the exhibit without her (We did go see her afterwards though!)

The exhibit consisted sculptures made from real, living plants! There was a part of me thought that they would be faux flowers/plants, so I was AMAZED by what I saw when we got to the gardens.

Mom <3 She loved looking at the exhibit so miuch!

I thought this stained glass bench was amazing!

I liked getting to see people trimming and maintaining the exhibit. Because that’s showing that the exhibit was a living, breathing thing.

All in all, it was a very cool experience, and I was glad I had the opportunity to visit and photograph the Alice’s Adventures in the Garden exhibit!
