Last week I decided to take a solo journey to Longwood Gardens as I was dying to see their yearly mum display. I was going to try for 1/2 hour and stayed for 2 hours! I walked over to the Conservatory and was wowed by the what I saw!
You can see the enormity of the dome from the other side of the conservatory!
Up on the pillars
The lime and purple are some of favorite color combos
Here was ‘the spot’ to grab a breathtaking shot:
I really love yellow flowers as they are so sun shiny pretty.
The different varieties of mums on display!
I felt invigorated (which doesn’t happen a lot lately), so I decided to walk down to see the gazebo near the lake.
I saw these pretty autumn branches
I was not disappointed by the beauty. I loved hearing the squirrels scratch in the leaves looking for nuts and the geese honking on the nearby lake.
I found this sweet little nest near the gazebo
On the way back, I got to chat with one of the gardeners near the empty looking gardens which were not empty at all. The lady said there were 100,000 tulips bulbs in the ground! They were covered with a mesh at the squirrel and deer will try and get to them over the winter months. I have had tulips disappear around my house.
All in all, I think I captured autumn at Longwood Gardens and their wonderful mum festival. I had over 100 photos and these were my favorite.
