More From Chihuly in Arizona





Now I want glass in my garden.  And lights.  Lots of lights. . .

Chihuly in Arizona


Before I got my new knees (ten years ago!), there was a Chihuly glass exhibit at the botanical garden in St. Louis.  I wanted to go so badly, but we never did.  I just didn't want to hobble in pain, even for Chihuly.  

Last week we visited the botanical garden in Phoenix.  And YaY! Chihuly was there! 


I loved this shot--everybody everywhere was taking pictures--either with a fancy camera or with their cell phones. . .
Gorgeous.  And then we learned there were night time hours when the pieces were illuminated.  So we went back again to see. 

 More to follow . . .

Arizona 2014

Thank you to our friend Natalie who recommended a Pink Jeep tour of Sedona.  It was a beautiful afternoon with good company and Mark didn't have to keep his eyes on the road.  No way I could have climbed for this view!

ISFA 2014


Phil Rulloda--internationally-known floral designer.  His shows and classes are phenomenal, filled with tropical flowers and poetry.  He preaches a message--yes, you can. 
Gift packaging for a bottle of wine. . .

After the shows, the pieces are sold to benefit ISFA's educational programs.  This one went home with me! 
Tami and her mom Phyllis joined me for the show, which made it even better :)
