|The last of the lilac bushes - a hint of what I'd missed |
The Botanical Gardens is currently exhibiting the work of Dale Chihuly, an American Glass Sculptor.
I have to admit I had never heard of the artist before and therefore was not sure what to expect, but was awestruck by how beautiful some of the pieces are and how well they fitted in among the plantings.
The photos don't do justice to the artwork. If you are in the area and have a chance to visit, I'd highly recommend it. The exhibit runs until the 29th October 2017. On some evenings the artwork will be illuminated. Sounds like yet another reason for a return visit to the New York Botanical Gardens!
