My daughter wanted to see cacti so we went to the Desert Botanical Gardens one evening. We were very surprised to see how many cars were in the parking lot. But we found out that it was open a little later because it was the one finals days for the Chihuly exhibit. Since it was my first time visiting the gardens I can’t say how it compares without the glass sculptures, all I can say is that they made this place seem magical. The sculptures were like exquisite flowers. There were so many different glass sculptures and the way they were placed enhanced the garden’s natural beauty, many of them matching the plants.
The glass sculptures reminded me of the sculptures you see in Murano, Italy. What a special treat to see such beautiful gardens with such beautiful sculptures.
