These Fuchsias were shot at Bellevue Botanical Garden last summer and is my contribution for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
Garden d’Lights is an annual light show held at Bellevue Botanical Garden each year from Thanks Giving to New Year. It features over ½ million tiny lights which transform the garden into a blossoming winter wonderland, capturing the “d’Light” in everyone.
This is a beautiful place to witness the Christmas lights in Bellevue. These pictures are from our visit last December on a cold winter evening.
As Christmas is close by I thought of sharing a post indicating the spirit of this festival. Snowflake Lane is one of the most beloved holiday event in the Seattle area. It takes place in Downtown Bellevue where each night, from the day after Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve, the bustling streets are magically transformed into an extravagant winter wonderland; featuring falling snow, twinkling lights, enchanting winter characters and lively musical dance performers.
These pictures are from last season’s parade. We went in early to grab a good spot as the street gets very crowded with families specially of children. The traffic is rerouted during the parade time and people are cordoned at many areas of the street. We managed to find a place in the front row of the sidewalk.
This was a fun parade to watch and I returned signing Christmas carols on my way.
