We ate our favorite Irish Pub (O'Connell's). Friday is always great Fish and Chip night
The entrance to the Garden was all lite up
Our friend John Merkle, who came with us to dinner and the garden
They had just turned the lights in the lanterns on at 8 pm when we arrived so we wondered around waiting for it to get really dark so the lanterns would really glow.
When the night started the lanterns really started to dominate the landscape.
Just enjoy the rest!
The "Blue Moon" finally made an appearance over the Garden
a couple in the moonlight.....
On the way out the phoenix was guarding the front entrance was breathing fire
