So what happens after dark at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania? Some call it psychedelic, some call it a wonder, I call it brilliant. With eerie eclectronic music playing, Nightscape: A Light and Sound Experience” by Klip Collective transforms the landscape by projecting images onto the plants and trees.
Running through the end of October, it uses both indoor and outdoor areas for its artistry, although I must say, it is the open air creations that are the most spectacular. Above the large lake, dragonflies and fish cavort, with one giant dragonfly seemingly flying right at the viewer. The topiary garden with its precise forms is the most fascinating, with the topiaries doing a wooden soldier-like dance.
Sorry folks, the pictures don’t do it justice, you will just have to visit Longwood yourself! And the daytime gardens are beautiful, especially the example gardens where you can vote for your favorite garden collection.
