Long view of water area of conservatory, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.
On any given, ‘average’ day, I can walk around a little piece of paradise in my corner of the world. This place is Longwood Gardens. And I have a garden pass-best $60 a year I spend. I think I’ve taken at least one thousand photos there over the past few years. This was just taken a few days ago when my son and I went to get snow shots. By 3 pm, the snow was mainly gone. Now tonight, it’s snowing again-we’ll probably get at least a foot or more overnight. I should maybe try those snow photos again in a few days. This is the part of the Conservatory that was remodeled in the last few years. I love how the sun looks on the back wall. And if you look even closer, you can see huge mounds of dirt as they are adding on to it again!
How nice it must be to be so close to such a beautiful place. 🙂
Snow? It looks tropical. You lucky bug.
Wow. That is far from average! I think I would have a garden pass too if I lived near there. When I was a lot younger my first husband and I visited Longwood Gardens over Christmas and saw the poinsettia and orchid display. Unreally beautiful. It wasn’t snowy yet and there were huge piles of leaves piled back in the back areas of the lawns, and I went and jumped in one of them, much to the consternation of my in-laws. Thanks for sharing the beauty. On our snowy slushy cold Ozark day, it is a vision of peace and warmth.
Just beautiful. Reminds me of the Devonian Gardens in Calgary. A little piece of paradise in the middle of cold, stark winter.
What a beautiful garden. I can’t find anything average about it. I really enjoyed your very above average take on this difficult theme.
