A Longwood Gardens Christmas

 is always most beautiful at Christmas.
We have annual passes, we visit every season, and this years Christmas display did not disappoint.
 "A Very Retro Christmas" was this years theme, we saw a lot of tinsel, baubles, and tinsel garland.
They made it look spectacular!

One blog post I enjoyed, yes they have a blog, was 
where they shared one food and one drink recipe.
The mushroom appetizer or was it an entree looked and sounded amazing.

You can read about the refurbishing of this truck here, also on their blog. 

Youngest son Michael came with us.
it was so fun to share this magical place with him!

Next are all the different trees...I have no idea how many we saw.

- have yourself a merry retro christmas -

Stunning place! Somebody is tired from decorating all of those trees. Your son definitely looks like he belongs to you! Linda in Kansas

Hello Debbie :=)

What an amazing place with Such beautifully decorated trees for every taste, Personally I like the silver tinsel ones, and love the 6th photo down. The poinsettias are beautiful and always very festive. I'm glad you were able to go there with your son, it's always nicer when you can share an experience like this with loved ones.

I finally got down to decorating the Christmas tree this afternoon and my daughter put the glass finial on top. It does look pretty.

Love the old truck with the tree in the back end, and oh my are all those trees so gorgeous, I can't imagine how pretty it must have been in real life. So glad you were able to enjoy that all with Michael.
