Earlier this month, I took a quick trip up to NYC and visited the Chihuly Exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden. The show was outstanding and I was surprised to see that many of the pieces were actually fairly recent creations. I loved seeing how Chihuly played off the colors of the leaves and flowers with the glass sculptures.
Despite having lived in NYC for a few years, I had never been to the NYBG before. It is simply fabulous, and we were lucky to be there when many flowers and plants were in peak season, especially the peonies, roses, and allium. The conservatory, a Victorian-style glass house full of ferns, cacti, and tropical plants, was the highlight of my visit.
Here are some favorite snapshots I took. If you find yourself in the NYC area, please go visit this amazing exhibition!
