November 5, 2016 -- Blue Tree
I have no idea what kind of tree this is. At first sight, I thought it was just decorated with blue lights, but upon closer observation it's actually all blue blooms.
Found this in Garvan Woodland Gardens, near Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Garvan Woodland Gardens is a 210-acre (850,000 m²) botanical garden located near Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Owned by the University of Arkansas, it has the stated mission of education, research and public service. It is open daily, except on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and the month of January and an admission fee is charged.
They host an annual Holiday Lights display – featuring 5 million lights over 18 acres – which draws thousands of visitors each winter.
The Gardens are situated on a woodland peninsula with 4.5 miles (7 km) of shoreline on Lake Hamilton. It features rocky inclines, common in the surrounding Ouachita Mountains, floral landscapes, streams, and waterfalls in a natural woodland setting, plus the fifth-ranked Garden of the Pine Wind Japanese Garden with Japanese maples and tree peonies, a conifer border, and various flower and rock gardens.
