Olbrich Gardens Gleam 2021

We made our yearly pilgrimage to our local botanical garden’s amazing fall show. The evening temperature was perfect to enjoy this outdoor program. We were greeted by a rainbow angel as we entered the exhibit. Her bright wings were beauties to behold.

The first exhibit we saw was a rainbow light tree. We could see it in the distance as we walked the grounds as well.

We walked down a brick pathway and a mysterious blue jellyfish floated in front of us and sped away.

Next we saw lovely butterfly light projections.

Even ornamental grass showed its soft beauty in the light at night.

We were so surprised when we turned the corner and fish swam by! Clever slivers of projection screens showed us slices of underwater life.

We walked over a wooden bridge and discovered where Poseidon has hidden all these years.

We finished the night with a swing on a great kinetic sculpture. The swings generate energy that makes the rainbow above glow!

This was our evening of bliss, before we found out the news Sunday of my father in law’s passing. Gracias for all your support during this challenging time. We appreciate your comments. –Rebecca

  1. How magical! There’s something truly ethereal about light shows, especially at night, that makes you forget about the stress and reality of daytime, and to be able to step back and dream. Olbrich Gardens Gleam looks like a really neat local exhibition!
