Today we broke our traditional Tuesday routine and instead went to the Desert Botanical Garden. And I must say it is amazing. I just hope my story and photos do it justice. It was a perfect pre-spring Arizona day. This is why us Desert dwellers live here and put up with our very long summers!!! The sky was perfectly blue with puffy cotton ball like clouds and the sun was shining down at a wonderful 72 degrees!!!!
For those of you not aware of the glass display going on right now at the garden, it is a must see.
Dale Chihuly is known for his handblown glass skills. His work has been called "liquid light". His work has been on display at some of the world's finest art museums and gardens. Most notably the Louvre's Musee des Arts in Paris, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. His famous corporate work of course is on display in the ceiling of the Bellagio Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. Who could forget that beautiful display????
This is probably the favorite, it is titled The Sun!!!!
This was one of my favorite's.I think it is one of his most beautiful ones.
A canoe filled with glass balls, of course this was Camdyn's favorite as she thought it was filled with Balloons!!!
Of course Arizona's famous Saguaro cactus surrounded by Red/Orange forms called Fiori or flowers.
Another canoe filled with Purple Fiori's.I think it went well with this tree near by!!!
I do not remember the name of this tree, I think it is a jacaranda, but it smelled amazing and it was so beautiful. If you look close you will see one of the many Large Bumble Bee's on some of the flowers!!!
