We began our visit as the New Year 2016 began by going straight to the Conservatory of nearly 5 acres in order to see this Christmas season’s display, which seemed to focus much on Blue and Water. Seeing the indoor exhibits during daytime hour, and the again, at night, makes the experience that much more interesting, for it is comparable to experiencing two separate show. As always, the array of creative displays for the holidays was nothing short of amazing, and the regular presentation of flowers and other plants throughout never ceases to lack a sense of awe. First class and pure elegance is the norm here . . .
The nighttime views were simply breathtaking, from the enormous trees lit beautifully by the grand lawn to those by the paths heading toward Large Lake and the spectacular “Floating Trees.” The view of the Italian Water Garden Tree Light at night was phenomenal in its brilliance. And furthermore, the rainbow of colors displayed in lights wrapped around the tall tree trunks near the Pierre DuPont House was so exquisitely presented.
The wide variety of flowers and plants at Longwood Gardens are absolutely stunning in all stages and species . . . truly a Garden of Eden for anyone with a deep passion for these gifts of nature. In addition, the architectural designs and structures throughout accentuate the experience, never ceasing to amaze. Situated on over 1,000 acres of magnificent grounds, and with the great influence of the original owner and founder, Pierre du Pont, still evident today, this is widely considered as one of the very finest garden in the world. One can visit every month over the course of any given year, and enjoy a new and exciting experience with the constant introduction of seasonal plants and flowers, along with one spectacular event or another.
