Bellevue Botanical Garden d'Lights


Over the weekend we visited the Bellevue Botanical Garden d'Lights. I had heard that this lights display was spectacular, but was unprepared for just how beautiful and extensive it was. Our first snow of the winter began to fall while we were there, creating a magical holiday mood.

Note the alligator in the water:




I loved the peacocks:






Parrot:






Monkey:

I have always wanted to go to this, it doesn't look like it would disappoint one bit! I can't imagine how much work goes into that display. Just when I was complaining about decorating the house and how much time it took, oh well!

Glad you all enjoyed - Alexi gets credit for these! If you're in the Seattle area it is DEFINITELY worth the trip (and it's free!).

Your interview at Faboolosity was...well, fab! It was great to learn a little more about you.
