Monday Musings

Good Morning Friends! I hope that your month has started out on the right foot. We had such a fun week with our friends from Ca. We ate, played cards, laughed, ran here and there and made memories together. Barb and I hit two new quilt shops that were wonderful, but today I want to share an exhibit at the Denver Botanical Garden. Hubby and I hadn't been to the gardens before; I don't like going into the city unless it is absolutely necessary. It was well worth the hassle with traffic. Dale Chihuly is an incredible artist who revolutionized the world of glass blowing. To be honest, we had never heard of this man before. If you haven't seen his work and there is an exhibit coming to your area, it is well worth the effort to see it. The Botanical Gardens are beautiful in and of themselves, but this was like frosting on a cake.

We spent hours wandering the gardens, surprised at the pieces that just intermingled with the plants.  It was a really warm day and we probably could have spent more time wandering, but the idea of rush hour traffic was on our mind.  I will share more pics tomorrow, but hope you've enjoyed.
May your day be filled with sunshine and smiles.

  2. How GORGEOUS! Would love to see!

  3. I've been in love with Chihuly glass since the first time I saw any. He did an exhibit in Milwaukee several years ago and demonstrated on site how they made the marvelous glass. Loved your photographs.

  4. Wow, those are beautiful!! We will have to check it out if we are ever in the area!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. You always,, always, always have the best times! So very beautiful!

  6. I have heard of him and some of his pieces have been featured on one of the HGTV shows with those expensive homes!
    Glad you got to go see it in person and had fun with your friends!

  7. I've heard of his work before; what stunning examples you've shared! Thanks for sharing what sounds to have been a fun visit with friends... such a blessing!

  8. There are several of his pieces mixed in with the plants at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. But truthfully they pale in comparison to what is in your Botanical Garden. Such beautiful work!

  9. Oh my goodness Noreen! This place is going on my bucket list!!! These are absolutely stunning!
