Autumn in Longwood Gardens

Last week, late in the day the hubs and I took a ride out to 
We don't usually go this time of year, we made the trip to see 
a special night time event that transforms the gardens with light and sound. 
It was dusk when we arrived, so there was not a lot of natural light in the gardens,
therefore we did not get a lot of great pictures!
Today, I will share the pictures we took in the gardens,
tomorrow I may share pictures of the Nightscape display, they did not come out very well.

The most memorable flowers in the gardens right now are the Dahlias.


The Italian Water Garden



The Mum Displays are just starting to open up.







The Miniature Train Display



And there were pumpkins...

with no shortage of people who wanted to pose with them.

We had a great afternoon and evening and The Nightscape display was amazing, 
I'm so happy we took the time to go and didn't miss it.

oh and a little p.s....the place was packed! 
But when I want a picture,
the tripod comes out, everyone gets a dirty look and the place clears right out.
That's a little inside joke but if you know me, you might think it's true!

  2. the two of you are so freakin' adorable! What a beautiful place to visit - I'll be interested in seeing the night shots. I absolutely love the close up of the purple flower (about 7 or 8 photos down) - and the frogs are really cute in a strange sort of way. Happy Sunday! (sorry about the comment deletion - stupid error)
