A Day Trip from Mesa to Phoenix, Arizona - Botanical Gardens - Chihuly: The Nature of Glass

We took one of our day trips from Mesa, Arizona today - about 1/2 hour west of Mesa into Phoenix/Tempe area. There is a special blown glass display which is scattered and integrated into the Desert Botanical Garden. It is located at 1201 North Galvin Parkway, Phoenix 85008.

This is Chihuly's first installation entirely within a desert garden environment. I've uploaded quite a few of the photos HERE ON Flickr and invite you the check them out. I have also included some special photos here to whet your appetite. There is so much to see here, in our very own state of Arizona, and I, for one am going to try and see it all and then share it with you.

Check out these plants....they are blown glass with the sun coming in from the side. This was a fun trip.
