Night Lights at the Garden

Night Lights in the Garden is a favorite holiday season event at the Naples Botanical Garden.
This year, 30 large metal origami sculptures by Kevin and Jennifer Box were featured.


A Japanese legend says that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will have eternal good luck.
This tower with a thousand cranes is in a pond filled with lily pads.


This tree was illuminated by floodlights that changed colors.  It was hung with lights 
that looked like fireworks falling to earth.

That looks to be an interesting event for the photographer. I'm not blogging much at present as my mother's needing pretty much 24 hour care at the moment so I'm not getting out and about very much.

I would enjoy seeing this and there would be the added bonus of being warmer at night than it is here.

I love those bromeliads! I have a box of origami cranes that friends gave me when I moved many years ago - something that you can't throw away in case you get bad luck!

This looks like a wonderful event, and very beautiful. It reminds me of the Christmas lights at Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Very different environment, though. The last time I went there was snow on the ground. No visitors in shorts, as in your last shot.
