Not all blooms in gardens are plants. Sometimes, they’re lanterns — like those in “Gardens of Light”, on display through November 4, 2012, in the Chinese and Japanese gardens of the Montréal Botanical Garden, 4101 rue Sherbrooke Est, Montréal, Québec, Canada (map)

This year, for the first time, the Japanese Garden also dresses up for the occasion. A subtle light show brings out the plants’ autumn colors and creates a beautiful and calm setting.
