We shipped one of those Pod things from my aunt's house in MD and it arrived safely today. Mostly we sent mundane stuff like the mattress Heidi had just purchased so Dex can finally have a new bed. But the single most important thing to…
Chihuly at Denver Botanic Gardens at Night

Chihuly At Denver Botanic Gardens – Night Time

When I attended the press event for the Denver Botanic Gardens premiere for Chihuly's exhibit here in town, everyone kept saying to be sure to go back at night. That the light was completely different. That the glass looked totally different. I went back recently with my pal Danielle for a little girl's night out, and boy were they right. We made it just as the sun was setting and had dinner at the new restaurant at the Monet water lily garden, Hive. The food was quite good, in the vein of upscale fast casual - although our service was quite bumpy. (If you call bumpy not very good at all.) However, we both agreed to give them another chance some other time since they had just opened and hopefully were just working out the kinks. The main reason we were there - to see the glass at night - was definitely worth the trip. Not only does the glass look different, but the flora all around them in the shadows transform as well. We have been to the Gardens many times for Blossoms of Light, but all the lushness that is still here now during the summer was a welcome addition to the Chihuly pieces.
