Our 28th Anniversary

Note: Click on photo to enlarge. 
 In keeping with our new tradition of celebrating anniversaries by doing a different activity instead of dinner and gifts, this year we went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see the Holiday Lights
The orbs danced with color to Christmas music and may have been my favorite display
It was a balmy 70 degrees and we got to the gardens at twilight so that when night fell, the gardens looked even better
Snapdragons were still in bloom
One of my "artistic" shots, fountain in the foreground, the IBM tower in the background.  The glass sculpture on top of the fountain is by some famous glass artist, can't remember his name.  Will have to ask my friend Marilyn, she loves his work and has pointed it out at different times when we've been together
In the rainforest there were millions of specs of green light that you can barely see on the leaves in this photo, but in the dark it was beautiful.  I said to Bob it would be fun to put up a couple of hammocks and spend the night just listening to the frogs
One of my favorite trees, the Bald Cypress which had a color wheel as if it were a 1950s aluminum tree
Bob's favorite display was all the hanging stars from the treetops
It was a relaxing evening, didn't get too crowded until we were ready to leave, so it all turned out perfect.  What will we think of next year?
