Botanic lights

Updated: Mar 27

My first experience of an event like this was a couple of years ago when I was living in Aberdeen but when I was scrolling through instagram a few weeks ago and saw that Edinburgh botanic gardens was putting on a lights show I decided that I just had to go! I checked with a friend and we started trying to find some time we were both free which seems to be an almost impossible job for us!

We settled for Wednesday night, met up with another uni friend and walked from George street down to the gardens. I forgot to take my DSLR so had to make do with some iPhone photos.

Next it was on to the Chinese garden where images were projected onto a small sprinkler or a water fountain, set to some interesting music.

Any excuse to try out my new hat; it wasn’t that cold but I love it so much!

Then it was on to this tree, ribbons and lights….I can’t quite put my finger on it but it certainly caught my attention.

If you wanted you could get a ribbon, write your wish on it and tie it to the ropes lined with the fabric.

And theres still time to get tickets, the show closes on the 6th of November so get your tickets before they sell out!
