Monday evening we took advantage of the dry weather to go out to see several local light displays. These are places we visit every year, but I never get tired of the colorful light in the darkness of December.
The Bellevue Botanical Garden presents Garden d'Lights. The garden has recently undergone remodeling and the addition of a new visitor's center. The light display has changed too, and is more spread out. I have to say I liked it better the old way, but it was still good.
The lights all represent real flowers and create a lovely garden.
The pond and stream.
A magic dragon!
The vegetable patch.
Autumn clean up.
The other light display is at a park on Lake Washington, where the Ivar's restaurant chain presents Clam Lights.
And here are the dancing clams!
The view from the dock out around the swimming beach is lovely.
There is much beauty to be found during the holiday season.
