Chihuly’s Lily Pads

This is my favorite of Chihuly’s art installments at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It is titled “Persian Tower 2012”.

The flowing waterfall made the perfect acoustical background for the serenity of this opaque glass and steel structure, and I spent awhile on a nearby bench studying the intricate detail of the lily pads.

As I strolled the gardens, I paid particular attention to nature’s lily pads which are equally serene and intricately detailed.

Tuesday Tangles

 

Laurel at Alphabet Salad features her tangles on Tangle Tuesday. I decided to join her today.

You can click on images below to enlarge them.
