Dinner and Music in the Garden


I was thrilled to get a chance to attend the opening night celebration at the Desert Botanical Garden for the Las Noches de las Luminarias event that runs now through the end of the year.  It was a wonderful evening with really beautiful weather so we could enjoy dinner and music under the stars.  This group called "Traveler" was simply fantastic.  Just look at all those instruments and they played them all.


The group does world fusion music and on one lively number this little girl from the audience popped up to do her own version of an Irish dance.  The faster he played, the faster she danced.  What fun!




Of course, there was plenty to eat including some very tempting desserts.  I confess, we tried them all.






























In addition to food and music, the garden was lit in all directions with luminarias and candles.  It's a real treat to see it all lit up this way.  Thanks Julie and Dave for inviting me along for this fun event.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  It's all about the search for chocolate.

Chocolate shops and now this? Zounds! Nothing like a good band, though. And desserts! It is no wonder you spend so much time at the Botanical gardens!
