We had a lovely, colourful time.
The candle lights were a big hit with the grown ups, we loved the smell; they had a touch of the pagan about them (the Wicker Man was mentioned) , my photos don’t do them justice, they seemed to go on into infinity, and that was beyond my skills.
Grown ups and youngsters liked the curtain of light, very tactile.
and great fun even if the photos were a bit hit and miss!
Mr Uphilldowndale had a go at finding his inner child, I couldn’t keep up (nor would I want too, I can feel nauseous on the Pendoino trains*)
The palm house is my favourite, from every direction, it makes such a fabulous canvas for the lights.
The palm house was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton, I think he’d have been impressed by the theatre of it all.
* The train is forgiven, we can leave Euston station in London and be turning the key in the front door just over two hours later.
