Longwood’s Christmas lights 2013

Gallery

Sean and I went to Longwood Gardens a few weeks ago so we could see the holiday decor before it came down. What was exceptionally pretty to me was the outdoor lighting! They really outdid themselves. It was fun to walk among the glowing, glistening tree and things. Not having a tripod made it a bit more difficult to capture the magic. I tried though!

In the conservatory there was a magnificent of red and green apples in a swirl pattern floating in some water. There were over 18 thousand of them.

Even the fountain had lights!

We had a pasta and roasted veggie dinner in their cafe.
