Brookside Gardens

Wow! I just got back from the Winter Lights display at the Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Md. They were gorgeous! During the summer it is a beautiful walk-through garden, but the walk-through lights display is supurb! Here is their information:

Brookside Gardens year-long 40th Anniversary Party continues with theGarden of Lights. It wouldn’t be a party without candles, or in this case940,000 twinkling colorful lights shaped in imaginative and interactive displays such as a flock of landing geese, an 11 foot giraffe, a mythical sea monster, and the four seasons make this walk thru light show an annual holiday family favorite.
Inside of the Conservatory, a winter display of holiday poinsettias, flowering plants and evergreens are combined in bright and bold combinations, providing a colorful landscape through which the garden railway trains travel.
The light show is open every night November 27 through January 3 and during the days starting December 5.
I also saw the Cloth and Chocolate Quilts. They were also fantastic! I am now inspired to do an entire Brookside Garden's quilt theme in the new year.
