A Chihuly Day
The Lord smiled on Texas this summer and instead of our regular 100 plus degree days of August, a cold front blew through, leaving us with wonderful weather. Maybe last years record 100 plus days gave us these wonderful two weeks, leaving us able to enjoy the summer with outdoor adventures. The Chihuly Exhibit at Dallas Arboretum was on display, so off our adventures feet took us, to soak in the last of summer. All of these were created out of blown glass. The large yellow glass tree took three weeks to assemble.
Dallas Arboretum gives an August special pricing 1/3 of the regular price...I am sure to bring in visitors on what would normally be too hot to attend. We took advantage of both..the reduce price and the wonderful weather.
I hope you enjoyed our walk through pictures. Now I am not a photographer..and yes, I should probably take classes...but this is what my little point and shot captured. I am sure this is magical at night. It was even more magical for us since just weeks before our son had proposed to his wife-to-be...blown glass never looked so beautiful.
If you come our way...take time to be inspired also. We sure were. It was a wonderful day in August.
