The 1906

Dining in Longwood Gardens is extraordinary, their restaurant,

Fresh flowers from the gardens decorate the table.

Bread baked in a flower pot is served warm before your meal.
Thank goodness each person gets their own,
the bread is delicious!

We each got the Filet Mignon, with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans,
the meal was divine.

For desert, I got Creme Brûlée 

For the hubs, 
The Chocolate Flower Pot
mousse, coffee ganache, chocolate cake, buttercream and vanilla ice cream.
The entire desert is edible, even the pot and the flowers,
 I brought the flowers home!

We sat on the outside deck, which is now enclosed with a plastic tent.
It is well heated...this was our view!
The food at this restaurant is exceptional, 
they have a new menu for the holiday season, and there is plenty to choose from.

Next, a peak inside the gift shop...

I always enjoy looking around gift shops too, so I liked seeing all the pretty things displayed. Did you buy anything? Oh!---and I loved seeing the scarf you are working on, in the previous post. That is a very pretty pattern, I love it and would definetly wear it, I am a scarf lover and have a pretty big collection, and yep, I do wear them all. LOL
