I've been to the gardens twice recently. Once when the cherry blossoms were in bloom, and once when the roses were in bloom. The gardens are serene and every vista is beautiful. The gardens are a perfect setting for the Chihuly glassware.

I went with my sister and brother-in-law on a Sunday afternoon and we saw everything and even walked to the rose garden and rode the tram back to the library. We saw all of the Chihuly displays.
Anyone know if the Chihuly exhibit is mostly indoors or outdoors? Hard to plan a trip with the weather lately. Thanks!

There are a lot of displays of glass inside the library and the big building
How quickly does the parking fill up on weekends? Going tomorrow morning and want to be prepared.

I think the lot fills up fairly quickly, but there's a huge garage right across the street.
