Taltree Arboretum Holiday Glow in the Garden


This past Saturday we visited Taltree Arboretum for their month long Holiday Glow in the Garden event (every Thursday through Saturday).

Our first stop was the Railway Garden Depot. Doll Baby was fascinated with the Train Christmas Tree inside while Big Guy didn't know what to think of Santa.

We spent majority of our time watching Thomas outside in the lighted Railway Garden. Eventually we headed back into the Depot to listen to a reading of The Polar Express.

We capped off the trip sitting under the lighted Oak tree surrounded by glowing flowers.

Absolutely beautiful! Well worth the $5 per car entrance fee.

Do you have a favorite Holiday lights event in your neck of the woods?

    1. The tree was AWESOME! If we could have we would have sat on the benches under the tree the whole night.

  3. Yes, living in Indiana can have its perks at time. I lived there for 43 years before we moved to Florida. Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday. Love hearing from another hoosier!! Don't be a stranger...come back soon.

    1. I think Doll Baby would have been perfectly content just watching Thomas the entire time.

  6. Here in Fort Bragg, CA, we have the Festival of Lights at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens (starting tonight and going through December 22nd) and the Lighted Truck Parade (this Saturday). The Festival of Lights is a beautiful tribute to artistic capabilities of talented people. The Parade is an evening of quirky fun.
