A Garden of De-Lights!

If you love Christmas lights as much as I do and you live in the Seattle area, the Bellevue Botanical Gardens has a display that just gets better every year.
Last night it was brrrrr cold but we bundled up and walked through the gardens...it was so much fun.

This is a shot of the mixed border, every year they add something new...I can spot sunflowers, daylillies, hyacinth, tulips...the details are amazing - can you imagine the effort that goes into this?


This spider and the fly cracked me up.


This arbor was yellow wisteria, there was another one done in purple...so pretty.


This walkway leads down to a tropical garden, my photos of that area are a little sad...chilly girl = shaky camera.


Maybe someday I can have a little display in my own garden like this one...
I'll add it to the list of "stuff I wanna do".
Oh dear me...that list is getting long.

If you could please do that at your farm next Christmas I'd be very happy. I want to see it just don't want to wrangle the Seattle traffic.

Thank you for your prompt attention. ;)
