With Dad to Atlanta, Georgia

On Wednesday, December 5 of 1990, I drove with Dad to Atlanta around 9:30.
We first went to a store near the airport for picking up two faux Ficus Trees and next we went to Lenox Square. After lunch at Neiman Marcus with Popovers and strawberry cream and a cup of chicken consommé we did some shopping.
On the 7th, we all would be flying across the Atlantic Ocean again...
On my way over to Lenox Square I did briefly exit at 249C for standing here and making this photo for Dad.
The Westin Peachtree Plaza, 2nd from left is perfectly visible!
Here you can see part of Atlanta Downtown on the way back South again as Dad took it through the rear window - including my faux Ficus Trees...
Our mission for getting these two faux Ficus Trees to make our new home look somewhat more lived in...
From a distance...
We had to leave within two days and the garden would be worked on while we were gone!

Thanks for your visit and comment.

  1. Hello Mariette, I like the touch of the ficus trees peeking up in the car, with the view from the back window. Perhaps this will start a new trend of automotive gardening.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Well that was our forced trend of temporary gardening since we were in Indonesia for 2 months at the time... It did create a little bit of a green touch!
      We had a great visit together and did what we could in the limited number of days. Pieter stayed home for taking care of a number of things there.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  3. Hier was de Ficus toentertijd ook heel gewild, maar toch meer voor binnen. Maar zo aan beide zijden van de deur bij jullie, ziet er echt leuk uit. Ze kunnen inderdaad ook gewoon buiten, als het niet vriest.
    Het verkeer was toen ook nog niet zo druk rondom Atlanta zo te zien, zal nu ook wel drukker zijn?

    1. Beste Marian,
      Ja, als kamerplant bedoel jij maar dit was een 'nep' ficus en die konden we dus mooi in onze front porch buiten laten staan. Die zijn een aantal jaren goed gebleven toch.
      Het verkeer was een enorm verschil, lang niet zoveel banen voor de autobaan die helemaal is aangepast destijds voor de Olympische Spelen. Het is er inderdaad véél drukker geworden!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  8. Looks like the traffic was rather light when you visited Atlanta. It can get really bad during rush hour! The faux trees are very nice addition. I think it’s important to make your home look lived in especially when you are actually away.

    Have a happy new week, Mariette!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Oh, there is NO comparison to the present traffic in Atlanta... What a dream it was to travel there back then!
      Yes, those faux trees held up for years and they added a lived in touch. Had them also on the window sills in the veranda, like African violets.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  9. Mariette, I wanted to thank you for stopping by with condolences on my Nicki's passing. The kindness of strangers is so deeply appreciated and I know that everyone has been through this and understands.

    All the best to you and your family, and I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving.

    1. Dearest Kea,
      That was quite naturally to do when I read about it at Katie Isabella's posting!
      We all support each other because we deeply feel about our fur babies.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    2. I got your second comment and am keeping Barty in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all will be well.

      Take care and hugs,

    3. Dearest Kim,
      Thank you and yes, we too hope that he will be feeling better in a couple of days. We all want our fur babies to live without suffering...

  10. We have a daughter in Atlanta and have been there many times. Coming in from the west and changing freeways right downtown usually takes my breath away!

    Thanks for your visit Mariette. We will enjoy my family tomorrow, but wish a few of our kids were here. I never feel alone though as long as I have my sweet hubby around. Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. Dearest Janey,
      You no doubt have been in and out of Atlanta many times over the years.
      Being with family on Thanksgiving is special and it makes for a warm celebration here in the U.S.A.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
