Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden- Origami in the Garden

I spent an afternoon in May at Lewis Ginter and saw the Origami in the Garden exhibit. The brochure describes it as “Soaring birds, gliding airplanes, galloping ponies, floating boats and emerging butterflies – 21 museum quality metal sculptures tucked into beautiful Garden setting as metaphors for the life forms they celebrate.”

I didn’t take a picture of the explanation, but these are “Blooming Stars” and “Botanical Peace 2” at the entrance to the gardens.

I didn’t take a picture of the description, but I’m pretty sure these are “Nesting Pair.”

Just some pretty flowers along the way.

I think this one is “Duo.”

Had to stop into the butterfly exhibit!

More pretty flowers on the way out.

I missed a few sculptures, so I went back a couple of weeks ago after work. It was a very nice, rare, low-humid day in August.

See the little butterfly on the left?

Always something fun and exciting in the gardens!

  1. Very nice! Once again, you get better every time. I obviously missed most of the sculptures. I like the bison and the acorn. Your flower pics were beautiful too.
