Nov 23, 2017 - A Longwood Christmas

I made my annual trip to Longwood Gardens to capture the indoor Christmas decorations. Other features on display in the conservatory at this time of the year were orchids and hibiscus. While Longwood at Christmas is always beautiful, I was a little disappointed in the displays this year. It seem that the last couple of years they have been somewhat subdued. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the money they've spent for renovations of the fountain system over the last couple of years. We'll be headed back to Longwood one night in...

Jan 8, 2017 - Longwood Gardens at Night

Longwood at night is always a treat. This year, Sue stayed home while I walked around the outside grounds on Thursday night. My first stop was the Open Air Theatre for the for the Fountain Show. Every 15 minutes or so they have a water fountain show with colored lights that is set to music. After the show was over I walked down the lighted lane to the Floating Tree Light Display on the large lake and circled around the lake to the Italian Water Garden Light Display. The path leads to a bridge across the narrows of the Hourglass Lake to a...

On Monday, we went to Longwood Gardens for the Christmas decorations, lights, and dancing fountains. Longwood Gardens is a wonderful destination no matter the season. We managed to get most of the walk around the grounds in before it rained....

Aug 31, 2014 - Sightseeing at Home

While spending the last week at home, we decided to do some sightseeing in our area. Longwood Gardens is about 10 miles from our house just over the border in Pennsylvania. We used to come here in the spring when I was a kid. It's one of those places that you visit when you first move to an area and hardly ever go back because it's there. The last time we were there was on a family trip probably in the late 80's or early 90's. I decided to go to Longwood last Wednesday to do a little photography after reading that a photography group was...
