While in Asheville, NC, my husband and I attended “Winter Lights” at the North Carolina Arboretum. It was spectacular!
Even from the parking lot, we were mesmerized by the beautiful light-wrapped trees. Tons of them.
And when I say these trees were wrapped, I mean they were REALLY wrapped!
Can you even imagine how many lights are on that one blue tree, above? I can’t.
The display took good advantage of the many trees, but there were also some very beautiful fake ones. These slowly changed colors, so I had to take about six pictures of them.
Trees were also used to show off other items. Like several beautiful chandeliers. They changed colors, as well. Very cool, right?
These more subtle colored cones were one of my favorite things. They were made with translucent plastic wrapped around a single bulb and “planted” in the ground. (I want them in my yard.)
Check out these 4 blue sculptures. As you might guess, they also changed colors.
Here’s a detail shot. Can you tell what they’re made of?
That’s right, bottles of water. A light in the center illuminates them.
I’ve only shown you a sampling of the many displays that made up this exhibit. If you’re in the area during winter I encourage you to check it out for yourself. (But bundle up, as this Floridian did.)
