Happy Friday! I'm still enjoying time with family in Arizona, along with the fabulous sites. The Phoenix area is home to the beautiful Desert Botanical Museum, which exhibits both native and exotic (and often rare) desert plants. This holiday season, the museum has incorporated into its already stunning landscapes the glass sculptures of artist Dale Chihuly. Chihuly has arranged the sculptures so that they echo or contrast the plants around them. I'm still going through the hundreds of photos I took (Salix created a monster when he bought me that camera!), but here are a couple shots of some of the glassworks in the sunset that greeted us as we left the exhibit.
I have a few more precious days here--then I'll have more time for blogging. In the meantime, thanks to all of you for your kind comments--I hope your new year is off to a brilliant start!
Oops, almost forgot--here's the link to other contributions to Skywatch.
