Rooting around in my blog attic, I find these photos from Franklin Park Conservatory, in Columbus, OH, that I forgot to share with you after my visit in April.
As well as the many plants and exotic tropical birds that entertain you when you visit Franklin Park, you can get a taste of art as well. The Conservatory is the only botanical garden to own a signature collection of Dale Chihuly's art, glassworks so exquisite as to take one's breath away.
Four pieces are on permanent display.
I think this is my favorite: Blown glass balls floating in a koi pond. Awesome!
For those fascinated by this art, the next showing of the full collection will be in 2009.
