Glass in the grass

Yesterday, Meredith, Morgan and I went to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens to see the amazing Glass sculpture work of Dale Chihuly. I have been trying to convince Morgan that he is a pirate, but to no avail. The exhibit was mostly outdoors, in the beautiful, rambling gardens and ponds, with spritely, colorful pieces of glass such as this:

placed amongst trees, shrubs and flowers like this:
Making for a very nice composition like this:

Even the Sphinx at the gate was enthralled with the display, and so we were able to sneak in without answering the customary riddle.

As Meredith is pointing out, these "Bamboo Reeds" have rings like the real bamboo.

We saw The Sun and The Moon~

And what looked to be many different planets,

Being used as marbles.

There was literally a boatload of glass there.

And there was really only one thing that could make it look prettier.

OK, well maybe two....
