A few years ago, Kew Gardens was the backdrop for 25 lush displays by the very talented glass blower, Dale Chihuly. I love glass, especially old or coloured items, and this was one of my favourite exhibitions. The botanical backdrop was the perfect setting for these unique works of art.

|The floating glass sculpture reminded me of murano glass and the canals in Venice|
|These glass shards in the conservatory looked as if they had just sprouted up from seed!|
