Nice slide show. Couldn't hear the music, so I had to hum. Just kidding. I like videos and slide shows. How do those flowers stand the cold?

T & I: I haven't attempted sound yet. I have a hard enough time remembering how to make a slide show.

The flowers where earmuffs.

I love Longwood Gardens but have been there only in Spring and Summer, and only during the day. I've heard that it's beautiful during the Christmas season, and have always wanted to go see the night lights.

You did a good job on this.

TLP: This is one of my mother's favorite places. She can't walk much any more so we do 3 hours of driving (all totaled) for three hours of very slow meandering and lots of sitting, but she loves flowers. I'm the only one who will keep going with her.

They had an organist and we sang Christmas caroles. The displays are amazing. We never make it to full dark for the lights though. My photos at the end are only at 4:30pm.

This is fantastic. I love the living wreathes! And growing bananas in PA in the winter time? Mind boggling.

They have a humongous glass house in which they have their displays, with many exotic plants.

Actonbell: Thanks. It was very pretty this year.

Beautiful place. I loved the electric train set so much. Kept playing jungle among our plants as a child.

Nessa said...

Ariel: You would love this place then. Full of jungles.
