Glass in the Garden

Monday, March 23

We arrived in Scottsdale, Arizona last Friday for a business meeting. It’s good to be warm again for a few days.

Today was a definite highlight. We visited the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. We were here in December at night when the garden was lit with luminaries – beautiful! Now we got to see it in the daytime – still beautiful.

Currently the garden is running an exhibit of Dale Chihuly Glass work. I’ve long been a fan of his work, and wish I could afford to own some (smallest pieces for sale in the gift shop were $6,000!) The exhibit runs through May, so if you’re in the area, I recommend it highly. Pieces of his art are strategically placed throughout the gardens, including spheres, reed shapes, swirls and much more. Wish we could have spent more time here.
