At any rate, they're a lot of fun for kids of all ages. (Just between you and me, Smarticus and I may or may not have been known to remain on the floor assembling some of those brightly-colored marvels long after the grandchildren have lost interest and moved onto something else.)
When we visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in 2014, I shared some pictures of the fabulous mosaicultures they had on exhibit. Well, towards the end of last year, we visited the new branch of the Gardens, located in Gainesville, where a LEGO® exhibit was on display. Let's just say the stuff they had there is a heckuva lot more sophisticated than I ever imagined anyone building with those blocks. Wanta see...?
This first one is rather simple. (Albeit, beyond my skill level.) It shows a couple squirrels and birds at a feeder.
Here's a closer look at a couple of the birds.
A gardener tending a plant.
A true-to-life sized roto-tiller.
A sundial.The bushes surrounding the dial had clocks hanging from them. (Yes, that's my shadow... time for me to pay more attention...)
A hummingbird and trumpet plant.
A mallard duck and his babies... and an egg.
A woodpecker on a tree that's wrapped in a web of red yarn.
A majestic bald eagle.
A corn snake... according to the sign at the gardens. According to my brother, who KNOWS his snakes, it's actually a milk snake.
And a monarch butterfly.
There is strength in numbers. When the bricks stick together, great things can be accomplished. [Steve Klusmeyer]
And that's all from this brick... or more like blockhead... for now.
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
