A Longwood Christmas--Daytime Effects Three!

My Mother Grew a Poinsettia Into the Summer Months Once!

A Beautiful Orchid Wreath

A Decorated Agave Tree in the Silver Garden

A Succulent Wreath in the Silver Garden!

Every Alcove Was Decorated

A Decorated Tree Outside the Ladies Room!

I Think Boxwood with the Special Mulch

Pinecone Mulch!  Very Clever!

Garden Railroad and a Replica of the Conservatory!

I Loved these Steps

Barn or a Carriage House

Maybe the du Pont House

I Just Loved that the Buildings are Made Out of Natural Materials

Finally I Got a Train in the Photo!
Well, you asked for it.  There are still a few more daytime photos for tomorrow.  Sorry for those of you looking for the nighttime ones!  Not quite yet.  Hope this gives you a sense that every nook and cranny was decorated at Longwood.  I took a few short videos around the railroad with some children.  I'll share those with you later.  We are going to the movies to see "Lincoln" with our friend, Mike later today.  Need to work on my Christmas wreath for the front door.  Maybe that will get me in the spirit.  The temperatures are finally seasonal here.  Rain coming tomorrow.  Glad it won't be cold enough for snow!  Hope you are having a great day.  Talk to you later.

Love the silver-blue succulent wreath. Very inspiring.

Love to you,

The attention to detail is super! Hard to imagine how many hours & days went into all that. The pinecone mulch is clever.

Saw Lincoln the day after Thanksgiving / excellent & beautifully well done!

We had snow this morning - more on the way.

Yes, Tracey and some get even better in the evening.

Yes, Sharon, it was definitely a WOW moment.

TO, everything is so well done there. Santa's elves were hard at work.

Thanks ladies for stopping by! xxoo Nancy

Barbara said...

Oh this is beautiful. I am looking for a winter getaway in January for a long weekend. I wonder if the Christmas decorations stay up through January?

Hey, Barbara, the lights will be up until January 6th.

Thanks for posting on my blog. You can always leave the tomato stuff out.

Thanks Peggy. Always fun to see a garden site from someone else's viewpoint.

Somehow lots of recipes change without the tomatoes! I hate not being able to eat them.:( Thanks for stopping by as always. xxoo Nancy
