Our Beautiful World-Bubbles

What a fun topic for the week!  This week, the OBW blog chose the word "Bubbles"!  What first came to my mind were some of the pictures I took at the Dallas Arboretum last year when we visited the Dale Chihuly blown glass exhibit.  His work is so fabulous and North Texas was fortunate to have one of his most extensive outdoor exhibits on display for several months.  I have chosen just a few of the many pictures I took...these most aptly depicting the idea of "bubbles"!

More glass "bubbles"

Another picture of the gondolas in the pool which also overlooks White Rock Lake
And although not bubbles, this glass waterfall had some bubbles created in the water flowing behind the glass
     The amazing exhibit was just breath-taking...it covered acres of blown glass...some huge works of art....tree-size!  And the display was so artfully placed...in and around the beautiful permanent floral exhibits of the park!
