Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond.  It's big and the light show is ambitious.

Wrapped trees, some string lights, a couple of cheap spotlights (Home Depot equipment).

Moon.  It helps that the sycamore tree was brightly spotlighted

moon tree

Same bridge, same moon.  Anyone could make these light boxes.  They did have problems with them blowing away.

Light blue ("teal?") was big.

Huge flowers outside the greenhouse, which had really nice palms, bromeliads & orchids

They do the same thing at the Bot Garden here in Nerferk va. I've quit donating after they got rid of all the eagle nests a couple years ago. At the protest, the native 'merkins said they'd take them down and treat them with the respect they deserve, but NYET. Some city employees went up on a lift and dumped them in a bin to go to the landfill.

The eagles have since beennesting in a rich guys trees on the other side of the lake.

Looks like the airport needed the eagles gone.  I've been to the Norfolk garden (it's right next to the airport, so about the easiest place in Virginia to visit) and the lake does look like perfect bald eagle or osprey habitat.  

Norfolk was nice in late February with lots of Asian magnolias and camellias.  Of course Hatteras Lighthouse was the big attraction.
