    The pompom mum is wonderful, but I'm drawn the the New East Conservatory! Looks like that is a place I could spend hours! Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos.
  6. Looks like you arrived in time for the Chysanthemum festival. I hope I can make it there before it ends. Awesome photos. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Really nice images Mike. The detail in these shots is great and the colors soft and beautiful.

    Very nice Mike. I haven't had a chance to go since they re-opened the conservatory. My kids can't wait until the open the new children's garden. I like your shot of the silver room. I think that is one of my favorite spots at the gardens. Thanks for sharing these with us. :smile:
  11. Thanks Gordon

  12. Wonderful idea! I am positive that we will visit the Gardens at least two more times before snow flies. I will make sure I PM you before we head north.

    I understand that the Holiday display is awe-inspiring. Hope to see you there.

  15. Thanks you Maria if you ever make a holiday over here try to visit it is one of the most world renowned gardens. I appreciate you taking the time to look and comment
  16. You've reminded me what a great place Longwood Gardens is with your wonderful photos. I haven't been for such a long time, and we aren't all that far away. The conservatory would be great for both wide-angle and macro practice during cold weather, wouldn't it??
    The Bird of Paradise shot is lovely, my fave.
    Mike you really get around and shoot a lot !! Good for you !!!!!
    [EDIT: The leaf of your unknown flower looks like a chrysanthemum leaf.]
