The things that grow in the desert are amazing. But to be honest, the most wonderful thing I saw at the Desert Botanic Garden in Phoenix was these amazing glass “plants” by artist Dale Chihuly, whose work I adore.
These are a permanent installation at the garden. Unfortunately, I just missed a major Chihuly exhibition there in which his works were scattered throughout the landscape of the park. I was devastated! Google it – the photos are unreal.
