Garden Glow

Garden Glow 2013-12-20 1

LED outdoor lighting seems to be all the rage in St. Louis this holiday season. We saw it a couple of days ago at the planetarium. There is also a large and varied display of them in the Missouri Botanical Garden for the first time this year. It's called Garden Glow.

This is The Climatron, a greenhouse enclosed in a geodesic dome. Note also the lights hanging from the trees. Look closely and you will see a little disk above each one. They are solar panels - this part of the display is self-powered.

More of this in coming days.

Reminds me of a roller coaster at night. Very cool shot. Merry Christmas!

It's LED everywhere here now. Nothing as nice as this though.

Wow. This is terrific.

In NYC today. Looks like you will not get a white Christmas when you are here.
