Garden d’Lights

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.

Here is a cart decorated with Christmas lights at Furnace Creek Inn in Death Valley National Park, California. It was shot last winter and indicates the Twinkle of the colorful lights.
