I was in New York City last week for vacation and thought I would share some photos of the New York Botanical Gardens. The gardens are inspiring even without further artwork but this summer they are displaying an outdoor Chihuly installation.
I have been to the gardens before and really enjoyed seeing the variety of plants and flowers. They have a wonderful collection of water lilies that seem to be in bloom no matter when you go.
The Chihuly glass really added to the gardens with their bright colors and wonderful shapes.
The glass was spread throughout the gardens and some were inside the various buildings. They even had some of Chihuly’s sketches.
So if you’re in New York City this summer, it is well worth it to go and visit the New York Botanical Gardens. Lots of inspiration and gorgeous colors. Doesn’t the close up of the glass on the left above look like fibers?
