As shared here a few weeks ago (in this Garden of Lights post) my brother and I enjoyed a lovely outing to Lewis Ginter’s Gardenfest celebration in Richmond, Virginia. Just before the New Year, Virginia (the person) enjoyed another trek up to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden with her sister, niece and energizer uncle.
This time it wasn’t quite so crowded (or cold) so we thoroughly enjoyed taking our time traipsing around the gorgeous lights and sights.
Today (to brighten up this second week of the new year) here are a few highlights from Virginia’s second visit to Gardenfest.
Once again the luminescence of Gardenfest’s ‘bringing art to light’ wowed.
There were ‘enlightened’ flowers everywhere (not in bloom, but in Light!)
I take that back, actually there were a few blooming flowers…
Once again, the children’s garden was packed with families enjoying the sights.
We managed to see the trains this time (last time the line was way too long)
(note: all the amusement park peripherals moved, too.)
Magnificent trees and scenes of joyous light wowed my uncle, sis and niece (& me!)
Once again, though, methinks our collective favorite was the tribute to Monet’s bridge (given how much time we spent there.)
What a wonderful wandering walking in Lewis Ginter’s Gardenfest’s wonderland of Art & Light. Hope you enjoyed this second visit as much as I enjoyed mine.
