I haven’t been to Frederick Meijer Gardens at Christmas time in years. This year, even though it was after Christmas, I decided to go before they took the display down. It was gorgeous and I’m so glad I decided to go! I left later in the day than I would have normally (it is two hours away) because I wanted to see the displays in the dark. I didn’t want to arrive too late, though, because I wanted to also see the plants in the day time. Of course, this winter in Michigan so far, has been devoid of sun, but I still managed to get some good pictures.
The lobby was decorated beautifully.
Christmas trees from around the world
One of their two main displays is the decorated Christmas trees and other holiday displays representing many countries around the world. There a lot of pictures. The trees were so beautiful and the ornaments stunning! Enjoy!
The second display is the railway garden and it is absolutely stunning. All of the buildings in the display are made from natural materials and all represent buildings from Grand Rapids and their sister cities in other countries. I loved their use of houseplants as the landscaping for the buildings.
And my favorite……….
But, the thing that caught my attention the most, was the Moravian star. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of it!
And finally, the conservatory with lights..It was so beautiful and I hope you enjoyed the tour. I bet you have a conservatory near you that is equally as gorgeous.
Outside in the gardens….
It is no secret that love conservatories and visit them whenever I have the chance. There is always something new to see and discover. Visit one near you often.
