The Dominion GardenFest of Lights installation is nearly complete at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. For 2013, the theme will feature constructions from, or replicating, nature’s jewels — this year’s GardenFest theme after all is A Natural Love Affair. The details are multitudinous and magnificent. Here are a few for starters.

    These are awesome! They remind me of my children’s fairy houses, so creative and believable! We can’t wait to see the Garden Fest of Light!
