A visit to the Dallas Arboretum: thanks mom!

Tower of yellow chihuly
Combine the magic artistry of Chihuly's dreamy glass with the setting of an arboretum, and that's what you can find at the Dallas Arboretum up until the end of the year. My mom recently sent me these photos, but I thought you'd probably like to see them too.

Talk about punctuation in the garden...

These remind me of steam rising, or ghosts rising out of the water.
the glass is like ghosts rising in the water

Dreamy spires

Looks like it's time to harvest!
Is it time to harvest?

Red hot pokers on water...

I really have no words for this fabulousness...

Doesn't this look like sea holly?
doesn't it look like sea holly?

And look how it's set up for an approach...
lined with pumpkins

blue flames of glass

 How fun is this?

There were also pumpkins...

And here's your bonus. My mom is a princess!

Thanks for the eye candy mom!

My friend lives in Dallas and has a membership to the Arboretum. I have been dying to go visit and see this exhibit, but unfortunately I don't think I'm going to make it. :(

Whoa! You totally freaked me out with that first photo until I scrolled down and saw the word Chihuly.

I'm amazed at how at home glass installations seem in garden settings. The pumpkin-lined path gets to me too.
