Kicking off Summer at NYBG’s Chihuly Exhibit! [Photos/Video]

Tina Trevino NY Botanical Garden

Chihuly’s “Red Reeds” greet us for the beginning of our fun day in the garden.

 

 

Although summer hasn’t officially started, it certainly feels like it and that means an obligatory trip to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx.

It’s always one of my favorite things to do once the weather turns up the heat and you just know that the gardens have started their breathtaking displays of vibrant color

I definitely get the itch to see what’s happening in the garden–from technicolor red poppies to pastel peonies and lavender hued allium, it is truly a spectacular array of plant life.

With my “professional gardener” parents in town for the week, I also know this is one of their favorite things to do while visiting NY. And I also had my sister and her boyfriend join us for this fun “get outdoors” Saturday.

As we start our walk down towards the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, we come across a long stretch of vivid peonies in bloom just calling out for us to come and see them.

In addition to the permanent gardens, this summer NYBG has collaborated with Dale Chihuly to create an installation of his beautiful organic glass creations set against the lush backdrop of the gardens.

Chihuly is renowned for his large scale glass sculptures that are typically installed as environmental pieces of artwork playing against natural textures and light. What better way to spend a gorgeous day–outdoors relaxing with family and enjoying the sights, sounds, and scents of the garden!

I don’t need to say much–the photos will tell the whole story of a beautiful day not to be missed!     

Continuing along to the conservatory. Even with some overcast skies–it doesn’t take anything away from the fun and striking display of plants.

 We soon arrive at the entrance to the conservatory with Dad hamming it up next to Chihuly’s “Citron Sun” tentacles sculpture.

Back out on the grounds passing through the creative cool-warm color mix of poppies and allium. Some of these flowers are so gigantic in size they seem unreal!

 In the herb gardens–oregano, sage, scallion, rosemary–making me want to get creative in the kitchen!

As we continued to walk around the grounds, it was fun to find the Chihuly glass sculptures hidden throughout the landscape. Every now and then, you’d come across one and it would be the perfect opportunity for a break and a photo op.

                         

In the shade with “Sapphire Star”–prickly and beautiful all at the same time!
