Chihuly

At Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory



Back in Michigan, it is time for some rest. There are many photos to go through for a more robust look at the garden bloggers Chicago Spring Fling.

I am so glad I decided to attend. Carpe diem.

Who's caring for the Spots while you're away from the mountains?

I was lucky enough to get to see the Chihuly exhibit when it was there severaly years ago. This photo brought back such fond memories of that trip. Isn't his glass just amazing?!?!

I loved seeing some of Chihuly's work - his glass is amazing. And it's perfect for its location. Thanks for sharing.

Grace it was all pretty impressive and had lots of transferable ideas.

Anonymous, Bev I assume. The Spots are bonding with the resident gardeners in my absence.

Lisa, it sure was nice that one of the Chihulys was left behind at the Garfield Conservatory.

Kim this particular glass installation was very water garden appropriate and totally cool.

Beautiful shot! I love his work. I'm wiped after this weekend, but it was wonderful.

I am also glad you carped the diem! It was great to meet you and Ani and the 50 other bloggers. I hope you enjoyed the city - I know it's a big change from what you're used to, but the city seemed to have its best face on this weekend (it's pouring rain here today).

Hello Christopher! Sounds like it was a wonderful trip in all! I am looking forward to future photographs from the Spring Fling. Chihuly has had several shows in Miami at Fairchild Tropical Gardens. There are some "permanent" pieces still there. If you ever get down that far south in Florida it is truly a worthwhile stop.

You are truly a gifted photographer and writer. I am just sad I didn't know about your blog before Spring Fling!

It was great to meet you and Annie and talk shop.

MMGD, it was a whirlwind tour indeed. The best.

Diane, Ani and I were so lucky to spend time with a local. It was a pleasure to meet you. If you are ever collecting Tilia in WNC give me a holler.

Siria Fairchild has been on my must see list for years.

Thanks for saying so Katie. It was nice meeting you and Chris as well and getting some west coast perspective.
