My sister and I got to visit Ashikaga Flower Park again, this time during the amazing Christmas lights display. The lovely wisteria isn't blooming right now, but the workers at the flower park have recreated the effect with colored lights.
How incredible to see this breathtaking place again. To make the day extra special, I braided my hair in a Christmas tree braid. Everyone I met at the park was so kind and thoughtful, and loved my festive hairstyle. I wish you could have been there in person, but how nice to share the experience with you here on my blog, through pictures. Since I have so many pictures to share, I will post them separately. First we have pictures taken during the daylight when the fall colors could be seen, and my second post will be more pictures of the lights at nighttime.
