A Kaleidoscope of Color

Last week was Spring Break in Seattle. We stayed in town because we went to Disneyland in March. It wasn’t quite a staycation as I had to work, but I did a few things out of the ordinary to make it feel like I wasn’t the only one not jet-setting to Palm Springs, Hawaii or Mexico for the week!!

One afternoon before I picked Sofia up from her day camp at the Seattle Opera (yes, really, she LOVED it!), I visited Chihuly Garden and Glass at the Seattle Center.  It was my first visit and I was very impressed. Actually more than impressed – it was awesome especially for a color-phile like me. 

From the minute I entered the first room in the dimly-lit gallery, I was completely taken with the colors, patterns and textures.

Stepping outside, the gardens were bursting with color and all of my favorite spring flowers were in bloom, dancing in the wind alongside color-coordinated blown-glass creations.  It was truly a kaleidoscope of color! 

If you can squeeze in a spring-time visit, I highly recommend it!
