Burst of color, unthinkable shapes, unexpected turns and spikes everywhere.
Desert Botanical Garden of Phoenix, AZ offers hundreds of different cacti on display. Now though this display is filled with fire of color because of the glass sculptures by Chihuly:

CHIHULY IN THE GARDEN

november 10, 2013 to may 18, 2014

I have seen Chihuly in botanical gardens before, but I think that this exhibition is particularly interesting because of all of the amazing cactuses, which are already surprising you with fantastic shapes and colors.

I recommend to see this show at the twilight, sculptures will be slowly light up and will start to contrast with the silhouettes of plants, Arizona sky will be also filled with amazing colors…

  1. Thanks for going to Arizona and checking out the botanical gardens. Different botanical gardens will have various cacti. I LOVE plants and the cactus is one of my favorite cause it surprises you with blooms when you are not expecting them. Have fun on your trip.
