Chihuly: Atlanta Botanical Garden

Years ago one of my girlfriends introduced me to the glass artwork of Dale Chihuly via some grainy photos on her phone and I was hooked forever.  Then he brought his magic to the Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Nashville and I haunted that place every chance I got just to see the glass in every form of weather and light.  So when another friend suggested we head to Atlanta for a trip to their botanical garden to see another exhibit, I was in.  The Atlanta garden is stunning.  There is a conservatory, an orchid house which rivals any I’ve ever been in, a kitchen garden that could supply an entire restaurant, and beds of flowers and shrubs that capture the imagination and make you want to run home to your own garden and stick pieces of glass in it.  I loved this place so much and can’t wait to go back!
