A Garden Tour is just the cure....

for the midwinter blues! It’s been awhile since I blogged, no excuses here…just that life managed to get in the way and blogging ended up on the back burner.

But the good news (I hope) is now I’m back!

Christmas was a blur this year, and look, here it is the end of January already.
Time just seems to fly past so quickly.

A cure for Winter blahs, for me, is a visit to Longwood Gardens.

Enjoy the pictures...



This one's for Mary. A Stinker...I know..it's the only kind of Heron for you.











Why can't my Christmas Cactus look like this??

Welcome back, Dorothy! You have had a lot going on. I enjoyed reading about your remodeling plans. Turns you life upside down, doesn't it?

You are right. Longwood Gardens is a necessity to lift our tired spirits during the dullest two months of the year. Your photos brightened my morning.

Hugs,
Mary

Welcome back to blog land--I will have to put you back on my list to check!
Longwood Gardens would cure any winter blues.
WOW--how do they get the Christmas cactus to look like a fuzz ball?

It's good to "see" you again!
And I appreciated the cheery pictures--I was thinking of doing the same.
White snow on white sky just looks COLD!

Hi Dorothy - what lovely pictures and what a lovely "garden." It's been many, many years since I visited Longwood Gardens. I was a teenager the first time I visited, and then early 20s the second time. And unfortunately, I never saw what they had indoors. The gardens outdoors are also beautiful during the summer months. Those Christmas cacti are gorgeous - I'm jealous, mine never look that good. But then again, mine aren't that large. ;o) I loved seeing that tree with the beautiful red decorations, too. And those wreaths, wow!

How I love Longwood Gardens. I am from Oklahoma so I never thought I would get to go. On my honeymoon, my husband surprised me with a trip there. Longwood is my favorite place in the USA. It ranks right up there with the monuments in D.C. and the museums. Thank you for a memory to take to bed.
