Longwood Gardens: A Longwood Christmas

 

On Sunday, Dolores and I took a day trip to visit Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania to see the 2017 exhibit of A Longwood Christmas. Longwood Gardens is about 124 miles from our home in Gaithersburg, Maryland. This is a wonderful exhibit and we highly recommend a visit during the holidays. Click on the link to reach the website as a preview of what you will see and enjoy.

 

Celebrate the Holidays à la Française!
A Longwood Christmas
Now–January 7
There are so many reasons to visit Longwood this holiday season as French inspirations await. Wander our 4-acre Conservatory decked out with fanciful topiary, explore over 11,000 seasonal plants, including over 50 trees decorated in reds, golds, and silvers, or stand in awe over floating cranberries and apples that create an intricate carpet in our Exhibition Hall. Then, venture outside and stroll amid a half-million Christmas lights as you listen to carolers fill the air with seasonal songs and warm yourself by our fire pits. Say oui to A Longwood Christmas and experience the magic of the season.

I  hadn't realized that Longwood Gardens was 124 miles from your home Roy.  You speak so intimately of it, that I thought perhaps you lived within a gazebo there!
