From Now until December 31st go view the Bellevue Botanical Gardens where over a half million lights are used to transform the Bellevue Botanical Gardens into a truely magical place. Hundreds of volunteers from all over the area have been busy making new creations for this year. New this year is the theme “Snap d’ Dragon” who will join over 30 “critters” inlcuding Charlotte in her web and Willie the slug. My favorite is the gorgeous pond and border display on the main lawn (picture above). Over 150,000 people enjoy the amazing Bellevue Botanical Gardens in the month of December.
