Candlelit Nights

The marvelous Franklin Park Conservatory hosts several evenings of Candlelight Nights in December. They stay open late and dim all the lights. Every room and walkway is lined with little candles. It is magic. I love the dark hush of the place and the occasional surprising chirp of crickets that have found the perfect place to hide from winter. We listened to music, tossed pennies into the fountain and found a blossoming citrus tree to smell.
A little bit of summer's splendor on a cold winter's day.

And my other favorite part?
The delightful shadows.

Tonight, as we say goodbye to 2010, I would like to wish you a very happy New Year full of wonderful and marvelous things.
