One of the highlights of our trip to the west coast was our visit last Saturday to the Chihuly Garden and Glass art museum.
Despite the unfortunately very grey skies, the garden and glasshouse sculptures, immediately under the famous Space Needle monument were beautiful and very colourful.
Some of the shapes and forms were familiar from previous Chihuly in the Garden exhibits that we have seen in Atlanta and Miami.
The image of the Space Needle kept popping up - as it does from many viewpoints in Seattle.
Some of the glass sculptures fitted in very well with the flowers and foliage surrounding them.
Others simply stood alone as enormous abstract glass sculptures.
