Light of the World Garden (at Thanksgiving Point)

Within Ashton gardens at Thanksgiving Point, where we visited their tulip festival, is a breathtaking area of sculptures depicting scenes from the mortal ministry of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It’s called, The Light of the World Garden.

It was really crowded as it was a Saturday, and I felt rushed taking my photos with so many visitors pressing in, but I want to share these with you-

This last scene is special to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because it depicts Joseph Smith’s First Vision.
