Longwood Gardens

Last but certainly not least.  Do you do that too?  Rank your favorite places you saw and favorite things you did while you were on vacation?  If this wasn't our favorite, it was very, very close.  I'm going to let the photos do the talking here:

 Thousands of hyacinth bulbs going in.  Can you see this in the spring???

 This is a whispering bench.  Let's just say it's a lot of fun to use!

 Gotta turn your heads to the side here...  These are mums - on huge frames.

 My sweetie puts his fingers in the water.  And this is one of, oh about two or three dozen water features.  Yup, we could make a WHOLE album out of the water photos!
 Staircase railing.  I wish mine were as interesting.
 Some kind of national mum show was going on.  There were dozens of fascinating mums.
 How many of you have seen greenhouses so large they have room for lawns?  I didn't think so.

 Ok, turn your head to the side - right side that is.  Now, see the blue sliver?  That's Connie checking out another water feature.  But, he's almost hidden under the plants.

Now, wasn't that amazing?  The greenhouses cover acres.  And the gardens themselves.  We barely scratched the surface.  Can't wait to go back when flowers are blooming.  This place is totally incredibleLongwood Gardens.
