Christmas Lights at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, Norfolk, Virginia

Norfolk Botanical Garden, Norfolk, Virginia, link here.

From Thanksgiving until December 31st, 2013, the garden holds their Dominion Garden of Lights.  It is a two-mile car drive through a million lights.  My photos don't do it justice, much better to see these pretty creations with our own eyes.

  25. Am resting a bit before Bud gets home and catching up on my commenting. This is going to have to be a trip Bud and I take next year. I just adore all the lights. The sunflower girl has to be my favorite. My first quilt was this girl and boy.
