Lantern Festival!

The Lantern Festival started today at the Botanical Garden and my son and I got to be there at the start.
Lots of pomp and ceremony — and so beautiful!!

It’s the first time I’ve seen the lanterns during the daylight, a totally different perspective. And still impressive.

While we mostly took in the lanterns, it’s hard to ignore the loveliness that is the garden.

The perfect climbing tree.

Per usual, my favorite photos are the images reflecting in the pools.

Perfect.

The festival is here all summer…and I plan on going back several times.
