Japanese Pavillion Evening Tour Route (and a bit more…)

Last post I showed you a mosaic of photos from the Lantern Festival in the Chinese Gardens of the Montreal Botanical Gardens.  Thats part of a whole route called the Evening Route in the Gardens so right after Chinese Gardens, we went on the second route in the Japanese Pavillion.  This place was dark and eerie.  At the beginning, we walk into the path is into some woods full of tall trees with no leaves and there were taiko drum music in the background with synchonized lights beaming onto the trees to the drum beats.  Afterwards, we walked along the path and saw the Japanese garden in the dark with certain areas lit up with various coloured lights over the trees and plants along the path.  It was pretty nice.

After that, we walked back and went through the Aquatic Garden.  That was pretty cool.  We had all these water plants and fountains around us.  Its not the season for flowers anywhere so it was all green but it was still  a new way to see this garden.

Here’s how it looked in the Japanese Pavillion, followed by a few photos of the Aquatic Garden.  Near the end, we caught eye of a two more sets of lanterns in front of the Insectarium of butterflies and grasshoppers.  I thought it was a pretty awesome experience!

Over here in Montreal, we’re getting into the Halloween/Autumn mood.

How about you? Any festivals and events going on?
