Light show at the Botanical Garden in Green Bay Wi

Butterflies everywhere! 

Don't they look like they are actually flying?

 The rainbow and the sun is out after the rain. They actually had lightning bolts.

Looking for the pot of gold!

rudbeckias!

daisey and sunflowers

This arch was beautiful!

The creek. There is actually a stream made up od flashing blue lights.  There is so much to see. Cattails, heron, lily pads with blooms, frogs, and dragonflies.

Me with the dragon. You can see that it was on the mild side. My coat isn't even buttoned all the way. Actually it did get cold after awhile. Also a bit muddy from the rain we have had lately, so am glad that I didn't have fancy clothes on.

Swans on the pond. The water did have ice on it. It hasn't been really cold and with the rain I was surprised that the ice stayed.

 Doesn't this one look like a headband that someone would wear for the holidays. Or a girl's tiara.

We haven't seen a lot of these yet. This has been a weird December. Except that we badly need moister in the ground I don't mind the lack of snow. But as I said we need the moister to break the drought.

One of the lines of trees.

Jeff and Me in the catepiller. As you can tell Jeff was freezing. Hood and gloves. I didn't notice until I was done taking pictures. Then BRRRR!

I love all the colors!
I tried to take a picture of the caerpiller from inside the building. The staircase was reflected in the window. I love how it turned out. Just so different.

Love this sign in the gift shop. lol

These are picture I took at the Botanical Gardens Garden of Lights Festival. It has been going on for a few weekends now. But we finally got to go as it wasn't raining for once. Seems like every weekend has been rainy. We haven't gone for a couple of years, so there was a lot of new things to see. Everywhere you looked there were lights. Many more then I have shown.
A lot of the blogs are going silent tomorrow in honor of all the children and teachers killed in Sandy Hook on friday. Let's remember the families, First responders, and anyone else who needs our prayers. Hugs, Teresa

  3. Such a beautiful light show. We do a similar lighting here in our city and we look forward to driving through it every year. I love the sign at the bottom. That's one way to be sure parents latch onto their children & keep them close. Found your blog via a search. Lovely read. Tammy
