Happy holidays ☮️🕯️❤️

We have several Christmas light projectors, but for reasons I can’t quite remember, we didn’t use them in previous years. It must have been simple inertia, because all you need to do is plug them in and turn them on.

This year, though, I felt motivated and set up them in the front yard. It’s nothing like the Garden of D’Lights at the Ruth Bancroft Garden, which I saw a couple of weeks ago, but it’s our very own laser light show, and we can enjoy it every night without leaving home.

It’s impossible to fully capture the experience, but thanks to the magic of technology these photos and videos are a good approximation.

On that note, I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays – whatever holiday you might be celebrating – and a Happy New Year. No matter what 2024 may bring, our gardens will be there for us, giving us peace and tranquility whenever we need it.

  1. Amen to "peace and tranquility" in our gardens in 2024!

  2. Beautiful Gerhard. The garden looks like it is full of fireflies. We just got back from visiting my mother and went to Butchart's for their light display. They did something similar but focused the lasers into the underside canopy of a group of conifers. It was magical. Felt like gazing into the milky way. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and hope 2024 brings on better times.

    1. Fireflies! That's a fantastic comparison. I hadn't thought of that.

      My daughter, who lives in Victoria, loves Butchart Gardens at Christmas Time. I can only imagine how spectacular it must look.

  3. That's showing your succulents in a whole different light, Gerhard ;) Well done. Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you! Who knows, I may never have this kind of energy again :-). Merry Christmas to you, too!

  4. Wow, what a magical place you have created with the lights on your garden! I love it!

  5. Very beautiful! Well worth the effort, I think. Happy Holidays and Cheers to the New Year
