Glass in the Garden

paul_in_mn(4b)June 16, 2014

My Daughter took me to the Mn Landscape Arboretum for Father's Day. I usually take an uber amount of Hosta and Garden pics.....but a little different this time. Each year they have a theme through out the gardens.....this year, was the "Nature in Glass: The Wonders of Craig Mitchell Smith". I added a link below hope you enjoy.

I tried to get a description onto each pic, if it doesn't show....move cursor over pic and click show info it will turn titles on or off.....sorry, best I could figure out using flickr.

These are amazing. So glad you posted them for us to enjoy! Bragu, even if they were for sale, I have a feeling they would cost a decades worth of garden budget. :)

Usually when you go to a garden or arboretum you do not want to see what many places exhibit as 'art'. These are truly art works and blend in and enhance nature, which isn't easy.

Very nice.

Wow - spectacular! Years ago I saw a Chihuly exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden that this reminds me of. I see he had an exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden that just ended as well. Thanks so much for sharing these pics from your visit, Paul!
