Thank you Blue for the the compliment. I would be happy to work with the museum and allow the occasional use of these and other photos I took while visiting. Please send me a private message at this sight and I will communicate with you here.

If you didn't mention the floweres were glass, I'd think they were the real thing. Very nice.

I'd like some in my home...I can't seem to keep any plant alive.

Gina - Living in CA with all the ground shake I don't think glass flowers would work for you either. Thanks for your nice comments.

Mole - The glass techniques that the Blaschka's developed added to their artistic skills and has never been equaled.

Hi Lou,

Very nice work with some difficult conditions. I haven't been around much lately, but glad I stopped in to see this series.

These are incredible! To think that two generations of a family made this their life's work is pretty impressive, but the work itself, and the techniques that they had to develop to make these with such detail is mind boggling -- not to mention the shipping problems!!!

I imagine that there are thousands of unique displays like this that all too few of us are even aware of. That's what I like about this forum -- we get to see a lot of things and places that we'd otherwise never even know exist. . .

Scott

Scott thanks for commenting and glad to see you back.

This museum is not as well known as it should be. Glad I could share this unusual collection with others.

Like your series on miniatures it gives us a chance to witness something unusual that we might not otherwise see.

Tomorrow I will be out all day on the Christmas bird count. The weather is going to be in the low teens with a strong wind expected from the storm coming at us from the south. I will be anxious to see the results of the count when it is tallied, to find out what has become of all the birds up here. My feeder still has light activity considering the cold weather.

Lou
