Garden of glass

Please welcome guest blogger Dawn Keller. who recently visited Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

When you walk in each room, Phipps smells wonderful – the scent of a combination of plants from all over the world.
Now, there’s an additional reason to visit the Pittsburgh-based glasshouse full of plants. Until Feb. 24, the Chihuly blown glass exhibit will be on display. Renowned glass blower Dale Chihuly uses teams to develop complex and multipart sculptures.
I’m not sure what it’s like during the day. However, at night, the art is spectacular. The pictures here don’t do it justice. It’s something that you have to see for yourself.
