Sean and I went over the the gardens at the beginning of the month to catch their holiday lights and decor before it came down. We went just as the sun was setting. It was a very chilly day. We have had mostly cold, not a lot of snow this year. I am complaining a little, but snow is pretty, but a nuisance.
The main fountain is getting an upgrade! It will take 2 yrs!
You can see how gorgeous the sky was that evening
There was a bird theme this year. I was delighted to see cardinals grace the tree in the conservatory
Lights in the bottom of the hanging baskets
Hands down, my favorite display of the hand cut feathers and leaves. There were many thousand of them for the peacock table
The duo of swans was interesting too.
The next couple are our Christmas decor. I had a pretty candy cane striped Amaryllis bloom too. My bird trees will be up for a few more weeks as we think they are nice to look at on these long winter nights.
We did a favorite thing tree. Sean loves color lights.

Back to Longwood Gardens
Pale yellow poinsettia tree
The bonsai tree had a full size pomengranate
I like this area of the conservatory. These may be extra blooms or plants they are trying.
There are always trees for local schools. This was really colorful
Love how the lights look here. Look up-it’s a wreath!
I have seen a tree used as art over on the campus of Swarthmore College. It was red too!
My brother makes bird baths, lawn decor out of vases and dishes also.
The LED lights are interesting in the desert room.
