Longwood at Christmas - Part 1



Longwood Gardens at Christmas, it doesn't get any better than this. Seriously, if you are within 2-3 hours of Philadelphia, you NEED to make the trip. You'll thank me later. Trust me.
I took so many photos, I have to break this up a bit. So here we have part one. All photos taken in the conservatory.




I don't even care for poinsettias but these pink ones had me swooning!



These peachy ones were gorgeous too! Don't you love how they matched the berries?



There was a whole room full of kid decorated trees. Very nicely done! Swooning over the cyclamen here. I don't even really like pink...



Table for two? Yes, please!



All sorts of trees every where you look. This one was in the cactus/silver room.



My favorite tree. Beautiful blue morpho butterflies all around. Stunning glass ornaments too.



Upon closer inspection, the butterflies actually moved!!! It was beyond magical.


Planning your trip yet? :^)
Stay tuned for part 2 - the outside lights!

Ooooooh, how gorgeous! I live in Michigan and it would be worth the trip to see all of those beautiful trees and flowers! I too love the tree with the butterflies! How enchanting!!

But, since it is highy unlikely that I'll be able to see everything in person, I truly appreciate you sharing your photos with us!

I hope that you enjoyed your adventure as much as I'm enjoying seeing it! :-)

while i twitch at at anything resembling barbie-pink, even i found the massed pink cyclamens impressive. the blue butterflies against the silver is beautiful.
