October: Winter skies are coming
Winter

Though I am not much of a snow bunny I will admit that the winter skies here are often dramatic.  With bare branches it is easy to see the expanse of sky that was hidden for three seasons right in my own back yard.  Extreme purples, reds, violet, lavender, and pinks create an artists pallet more magically than anything that could be painted.

The cityscape changes and snow gently comes to rest accentuating evergreen branches and every curve of berries.  Though it is cold, snow is fascinating to watch in motion.

In an effort to get people here out of the house during our coldest season, our public utility company paired with our botanical garden and created the Parade of Lights.  Wire forms are created and outlined with colored lights creating small villages and forests, gardens and animals all with the interpretation of colors.   Strands of white strings of lights hang down from the forest branches by the hundreds.  As I walk through the lights that gently move in the breeze I feel as though the trees have been touched by Tinkerbell (from Disney) and her magic want as the lights sparkle while suspended in air.  It's beautiful!
