On a night so cold and dreary, I was out all warm and cheery.
The North Carolina Arboretum has a Winter Lights display through December 31.
It was colorful, exciting and wondrous.
There was a giant tree at the center with lights that danced to music.
There were even chairs for folks to sit and watch this tree-show.
The quilt garden which is usually planted with patterns of bright flowers,
featured patterns of colorful lights which changed rhythmically.
There were sparkling dresses
and chandeliers in the trees.
Even the tiny Bonsai trees were showing off.
Reflections in the water doubled the joy.
Our favorite were the glowing purple flowers
growing on a glistening arbor.
The NC Arboretum is celebrating our season of ice and snow
with holiday music and a happy glow.
