Tucson's Library Plaza ~
These columns surrounding the main library plaza downtown are not at all remarkable during the day but at night - wow - the glow is beautiful. Lovely strings of blue lights create a Christmas tree on the south side of the plaza.
The library plaza is once again decorated and turns into something glowing and magical at night!

Tucson's beautiful night lights ~
THEN: Just wanted to post one more photo from the Tucson Botanical Gardens' Luminaria Festival ~ here are glass beads designed by local artist/landscape designer Margaret Joplin. These beautiful glowing "flowers" are glass beads and were inserted into the ground at the festival. I don't know if they are a permanent installation at the Gardens but they were lovely!
NOW: The Botanical Gardens has continued this Luminaria Festival and this weekend is the final weekend for it. Want more info? Click here.
