Mellow Yellow Monday photo meme was started by Drowsey Monkey at Mellow Yellow Monday. This might be a challenge for me as I don't recall making a lot of photographs with yellow as the dominant colour. When I opened My Pictures one folder quickly caught my eye - Chihuly. I love Dale Chihuly's work and try to see his glass whenever possible. In 2002 he did an installation at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. That was the first time (but not the last) that I went to one of his garden exhibitions. They are just unbelievably fabulous. And he uses many colours of glass. Perfect. This image is a close-up of some of the yellow flowers he had floating in a pond there. The flowers are 2-3 feet across and en masse are quite striking.
