Botanic D’Lights is sheer magical pleasure, with something for everyone (especially those who enjoy fairy lights). Trees are beautifully silhouetted:
There are lights on the river:
Fairies, snowflakes, and toadstool rings, archways, changing colours, and imaginative artworks all combine to make this a spectacle not to be missed. If you can’t get there in the evening I think it would be worth going in the daytime just to see some of the installations. There are pink flamingoes in a pond (sadly my camera battery gave up before these) and giant nests with eggs in the herbaceous border.
Marshalls at various points all had radiant dreadlocks. Although the temperature on Thursday evening was 0 degrees, there was no wind, and well-bundled up I didn’t feel cold. In one area there were ghostly howls, and eyes peering out of the dark:
“I hope you won’t miss these D’Lights
with so many delightful sights.”
