The name of this Chilhuly rose may be inspired by the famous glass artist Dale Chilhuly, whose work I was able to see at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. It was a splendid show. In the Entry way to the MIA there is a glorious large yellow hanging Chilhuly piece of glass called Sunburst.
Blown Glass is one of the discipline’s that requires huge ovens to make glass work, along with fine skills of speed and accuracy in the execution of a piece of glass. Having watched glass making in my student days, I was completely taken with the skills and artistry that it takes to execute a piece of glass work.
This year, October weather is mild as the Midwest has had little rain. The roses are still blooming in the Lyndale Lake Harriet Garden in Minneapolis.
On this day I was taking photos, but stopped and walked and sat to just soak up the flowers colors and beauty. Many people were admiring them. This unusual weather is a reprieve from our usual Autumn temperatures.
However today the temps are cooler with this trend of falling temps to continue for the foreseeable future, which makes me slightly wistful for the warmer days we are lucky to enjoy this October. Fall colors are seen more and more. The change is slower this year, but no less beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a good week, wherever you may be.
