Visiting Denver--The Denver Botanic Garden, the Plants as Art

Dale Chihuly's glass art, in the Denver Botanic Garden until November 2014, is very much worth seeing, but when it is gone, the plants will still be there. Influenced by Chihuly's glass, I looked at the plants and saw some fantastic shapes and colors--

Don't take my word for it. Walk through a botanic garden, a garden, or a natural area with your artistic eye tuned to the wonderful shapes and colors.

Comments and corrections welcome.
