Conservatory Aglow

With a gentle nudge from my friend Terri, I finally made it to Conservatory Aglow last night. This special holiday event is held at Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus through January 9.

There are plenty of things to see both inside and out including Christmas floral displays inside and beautiful lights outside. There was live music too.

It has been unseasonably warm here in Ohio but the temperature dipped well below freezing in time for our visit so it was quite cold wandering around in the dark.

I always visit this fellow who guards the Children’s Garden.

This arch is even more spectacular in person.

These trees are made of glass.

The purple!

My favorite spot was here, walking through this lighted tunnel.

Poinsettias are just so festive and happy.

They sell timed tickets and we opted for 5:30 thinking that it might be less crowded. This was smart as it seemed to get busier with each passing minute. All the same, it wasn’t terribly busy so we were able to mostly wander freely without interference from crowds.
