I made this trip to the New York Botanical Gardens mainly to enjoy the Chihuly exhibition. I've seen some of his breathtaking works before at a casino, but not his whole collection like this.

I crossed the street, waited for the train, 25-minute train ride took me back to Grand Central Terminal. Bought dinner at Grand Central market and walked home with a big smile on my face.

Thanks for your time, my friends.
Have a great day.


Stunningly beautiful scenery and works of art. Thanks for the chance to visit vicariously.

Thanks for enjoying them Majes.tytyty 😊.

The glass work reminds me of the ceiling of the Belagio in Las Vegas, very similar work, vibrant colors.

I think it's from the same artist. He has a factory and lots of people working for him.

Beatiful.... Thanks for sharing

Thanks Alol :)

I like botanic gardens so much! You always can see such pretty plans and flowers)) And you visited a very interesting exhibition too! Great experience!

Thanks, Kondratovaa! It's great we like the same thing :). Seeing something beautiful just makes life much better :).

Yes, I totally agree with you! I also think that it is a talent to see the beauty! :)

Aww 😍. Yes, it's a reflection of what we have inside 😉

This artist is a genius! He treated glass just like handling thin paper. He could even paint inside the glass texture! The design conception and execution of blowing the glass into all the different shapes are just mind boggling!

This glass exhibition is unique. Wonderful art exhibition!!
Thank you for the excellent work.

Hey! Another sweet comment :)! He has spent 40 years doing this so he's the master :D. Thanks for enjoying it, my friend :).
