Dale Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum part V






































And with this posting, we've reached the end of our tour.  I hope you have enjoyed the images as much as I have enjoyed sharing them.  For those of you in the Dallas area,  I'm assuming I haven't ruined your trip by posting these photographs.  If you make it out, you will see  that the images pale in comparison to the actual pieces.  For those of you out of the area, my desire is that I'm giving an  accurate view of how spectacular the Chihuly and Arboretum union is.   

I've tried not to critique or comment on each piece, leaving that to you.  If I had to pick a favorite piece, it would be most difficult.  Each turn in the garden, held a new and unexpected revelation.  I will most definitely be returning to see 'Chihuly at Night.'  Can you imagine these pieces illuminated in the dark!  Don't be surprised if I post a picture or two.

THANK YOU for sharing. They are all truly astounding. I can't even imagine what they must look like at night.

Been worried about these incredible pieces after yesterday's epic hail storm? Any update??

These are stunning photos. Thank you for posting them. The first thing that I thought about was a hail storm!! Hope all is well in the gardens.

As far as I know, everything at the gardens is good to go. Word around the garden paths is that there were duplicate pieces stashed away to replace any broken segments. I'll soon find out for myself, when I head out that way again. :)
