We recently explored Denver’s Botanic Gardens which currently has Dale Chihuly’s art glass sculptures incorporated with the water ponds and flowers. Around every bend is a new group of glass creations which are part of the flowers, grasses, or ponds. They are surprising and exciting.

We were there on a gray morning, not too many people, and the light was perfect to catch the glass pieces without glare. I’ve seen other Chihuly sculptures but these were so much a part of the different “gardens,”  Asian, Plains, rose, etc., that they blended and added at the same time.

The glass is lighted at night for a totally different experience.
