GARDEN OF GLASS at the Missouri Botanical Gardens 2017

July 17, 2017

The Garden of Glass show ends  at the Missouri Botanical Gardens  on  August 13, 2017.   Craig Mitchell  is a fused-glass  artist, and while in my opinion he is not a Chihuly,  most of the pieces are eye-catching and more than 24 displays  can  be seen for a small entry fee.   All but 3 of the displays are located  in  the  Climatron , fitting nicely into the existing beauty.

Here’s a sampling of  Mitchell’s work along with some of the live plants at the Gardens…….

Water Lilly ( live)

The Phoenix

Glass poppies of all colors  could be were found popping  up in every nook and cranny.

Live flowers…

with their glass counterpart.

Abundant live dragon flies enjoyed  the waterlilies in front of the Climatron.

The Dance of the (glass) Dragon Flies

Love these crazy looking  ( live) orchids!

Bird’s Nest(s) filled one of the Climatron  trees.

Don’t miss this display in the Cactus house.

Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for reading!
