Chihuly Garden and Glass

September 11th, 2014

Yesterday my mom and I took the water taxi from West Seattle to downtown and visited all the usual Seattle sights: Pike Place market, the Space Needle, etc. ¬†We didn’t go to the original Starbucks as I don’t like their coffee, but the French bakery in the market is one of my favorite places. Ever since our first trip to Seattle way back in 1998 (our honeymoon), I’ve been visiting Le Panier for good coffee and palmiers whenever I am in town.

We decided to ride the monorail over to the Seattle center to visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit and we were not disappointed.

I wasn’t expecting it to be as spectacular as it was, perhaps, like most things, the photos just don’t do it justice. I’d seen photos and heard it was great, but I wasn’t prepared for the vivid colors and the intricacy of the work.

After debating whether or not we’d enjoy it, I’m certainly glad we decided to go. It’s not a cheap tour, but it’s beautiful and worth the expense. I love glass art in the garden and hope to someday have some of my own.

What’s your favorite kind of garden art?
