More From Longwood Gardens....





The photos above were all taken along the mini brick walk in the Conservatory.
It is so much fun to see what they have growing along there.
It is a combination of variety with perfection in height management.



While the weather was actually perfect during our visit we were commenting
on how amazing it would be to sit in here during a rainstorm.





Chelsea said I made the find of the day when I discovered a wonderful bench
under some fabulous pine trees.  It reminded me of places my brother and I used to 
play when we were kids.  
We would build forts under the pine trees.
Of course sometimes we would have to climb the trees....
but that wasn't an option yesterday.


From the outside...looking in....


From the inside...looking out....



The graceful sweep of these boughs is so pretty.
It reminds me of a book duo I loved as a girl,
Patsy of the Pinewoods 
and
Patsy at Pine Cottage
by 
Marian Schoolland.

I think I am going to have to find copies of 
these books.
I read them over and over again.




A gorgeous day to sit on a throne.
Especially if one happens to be color coordinated
with that throne.

It was such a nice day.
My favorite photos are yet to come.
The cherry blossoms....and forsythia.

Have a happy day!

Oh I'd recognize the lovely sweep of that bough anywhere...you were seated beneath an Eastern Spruce...like my only tree that looms up over the deck these days.

What scrumptious pictures you're taking. I was particularly intrigued by the third photo because of the distinct petals. And, if you had taken that photo from any other angle, I don't believe that they would have shown to such a good advantage. Lovely!

I am going to be so jealous when you take my kids there for a field trip! :)

I must go soon....
