One of my favorite light displays for the holidays will always be "the blue tree" that we saw a few years ago at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It was a huge 60 foot high tree done
completely in blue. The year we saw it I did not have my camera with me, so I was not able to capture its splendor. That year it was bone chilling cold so it was probably a good thing I did not have my camera.
We went back the next year and captured it, but that year is was red and green...Impressive but not quite the same. http://kmswoodworks.wordpress.com/2010/12/29...
Since the blue tree year, we have always used just blue lights for our own tree.
I recently got to visit a pretty impressive display at someone's home up near Cheyenne. It is hands down the biggest private residence display I have ever seen in person.
Clark Griswold would be proud. My pics only show about 1/4 of the full display..the yard is about 2 acres and completely full of dozens of individuals "displays".
My other favorite light display comes from mother nature...and can be viewed year round by simply looking up at night... out here in the remote west is can be pretty impressive. Unfortunately for most folks in the US urban light pollution prevents this wondrous display from being viewed in all of its splendor.

The Denver Botanic Gardens are always beautiful all lit up at night. I remember that giant
We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.

I love this look and have the perfect place to do this project. Did you put down a bed of
sand under your path, or did you just level the ground and lay your template on the ground and pour the concrete? Also, can you make a wider path by just laying the template next to the ones already poured?
