This display of energy saving light bulbs, was on exhibit at Botanica's illuminations event.
And, regarding yesterday's photo of the prize winning photo, I want to thank those of you who thought possibly I was the winning photographer. I wasn't, I didn't have an entry in the contest.
And, regarding my question of what the inner set of tracks, on the railway bridge tracks, were for, read Moonshadow's comment in yesterday's post. Moonshado sought the answer, and got it. Good job, MS, now I am "on the right track".

Hyderabad asked about the train tracks in the Old Railway Bridge photo. I'm not sure of the answer, but thought I would post this 'turn around' view which shows the end of the inner set of tracks. I wondered about them, too, and thought they must be some added tracks, for better stability while crossing the bridge. Anyone know, if I'm "on the right track". to see the other side of the tracks, click here Bridge

Besides the chiminea's at Botanica, there were also some gas fueled (I have no idea what they are called) warming posts. They have flames in the upper portion and the heat is deflected in a downward direction by the umbrella style topper. This is something I've not experienced before, and I was impressed with how much warmth they provide. And, if that wasn't enough to warm up the Botanica guests - there was also hot cocoa, and hot apple cider for $1. Whoever put this together - did a nice job in considering the welcome relief of warmth in the midst of a cold winter stroll through the illuminated gardens.

Nature's Way provided quite a few chimineas for warm stops along the illimunated paths of Botanica. I don't know what kind of wood was burning in them, but it sure smelled good. In this photo, you can also see the sacks with lights in them - these lined all the paths and sidewalks.
