I took these pictures earlier this month at Louis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Va.. Their festival of lights is incredible. This is a giant coneflower made from lights. I wish now that one of us would have gotten in one of the pictures to show the scale. Each petal was 20 feet long. We made two trips there in order to see everything, as there was so much walking involved. A freezing night to walk around, but worth it.
"You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
My God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop,
With my God I can scale a wall."
