This is the second year that we have viewed the Garden d’Lights at Bellevue Botanical Garden. Actually, the third although I almost do not count viewing them back before 2000. Back in those days they had postcards and no one had a digital camera. G used to sell at the plant sale and I remember going down to the basement of the Shorts house to see all the stored wrapped lights. Those days it was mostly grape/wisteria arbors and delphiniums.
Oh how it has changed.
I think we always decide to go on the coldest day in December. Last year we went December 7th when it set a record for the coldest temperatures – I think it was about 24 degrees. It wasn’t much warmer this year when we went on November 30th and it was just below freezing.
I really like the new route starting at the visitors center. I can’t wait to see next year because I’m certain there is lots of room for more displays
