One of my favorite places on earth is the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA. We went to visit some friends there over the weekend, and as usual, ended up at Phipps. They were in the midst of their spring flower show and it was glorious. Especially the room filled with daffodils and hyacinths. Aaaaaaahhhhh!
I've never been one of glassmaker Dale Chihuly's biggest fans, but his work, set into the landscape, is stunning. One of his sculptures or bowls set out by itself looks like a fish out of water. Once it is set into foliage or a landscape, it is transformed.
In the Orchid Room - Glass figure by Hans Gogo Frabel.
Several of Frabel's people were scattered about. Unfortunately, none of the other photos turned out very well. Set in the ponds and walking along branches, these figures were fascinating. I wish I could go and visit them again tomorrow.
Where is my teleportation pod?!?
