This is the last of the Winter Walk of Lights from our favorite botanical garden.
Here we see more views of the blue trees. I don't normally go for colors other than the usual Christmas ones that I have known my whole life, the reds and the greens, the golds and the silvers. However, there was something about these blue trees that I truly loved. The one below shows the gazebo all lit up to the right of center. It reminds me of a child's spinning top toy, because of its reflection in the lake.
Another follows of a close up I tried of the lake and those reflections. I used my phone for all photos at the garden. Sometimes when I try to 'get closer' by using the zoom, they blur considerably, some worse than others. This one is a little out of focus but I thought it was charming, and it's a memory of how I took to those swans. Another bird I am enamored with because I get to see them so rarely.
The Heron's beak is pointing in the direction of the gazebo.
The frog was nearby and you can see the video below of it 'jumping'.
So, next we went onto where the insects hang out!
I think the spider would be a great decoration for October 31st, but it was doing a great job here too!
Even the cicadas made it into the mix.
Nature is represented in every way.
The Gnomes were taking care of everyone also.
You can see more of them at this post, when I was here in November.
The garden staff had been hard at work putting these lights up.
We stayed away from the skunks and admired them from afar.
Every part of the walk delighted the eyes.
"I 'toadly' love these lights!"
Yes, that's a bit of a groaner.
But he 'toadly' does love these lights!
You practically needed sunglasses. No, not really!
'Toadly' love it! Okay I'll stop now.
The flowers and mushrooms glowed beautifully!
Coming to the end of my post, there are only four photos left to share.
Such a happy atmosphere! Everyone was glad to be out and about, little kids and big kids.
There was even a place where you could get a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. If you wanted a tasty treat there were S'mores, candy, snacks and more. We didn't stop for those as we were tired and headed back for the car.
Even the moon was joining in. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening, and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
For those of us who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas! I wish you the happiest time with your Loved Ones.
To blogging friends who are of other Faiths with your own special celebrations, here in the U.S. and around the world, I wish you the same.
And may we all experience peace, joy and love in good health and kindness in 2022.
(I will be taking a blogging break but will be back next week sometime.)
