Internationally famous glass blower Dale Chihuly has returned to Atlanta's Botanical Garden, and he's brought his A game.

Starting Saturday, through October, visitors will get to experience a range of sculptural glass works scattered among the plants, greenhouses, forest, and ponds of the Garden.

We checked out the exhibit before opening day to get a sneak peek of the art and were far from disappointed.

Chihuly's work was last featured in the Garden in 2004, when the venue was just half its current size. With Linton's open for business, and Storza Woods providing a captivating shaded setting, spring is a fine time to explore this urban jewel.

Check out these photos for a glimpse of the dazzling display.
