Lunch at 1906 at Longwood!

My herbal companion, Bonnie and I have been working to get to Longwood at Christmas for years now.  The master gardeners had planned to go, but not enough interest was shown, so Bonnie and I made our own trip.  Somehow it is always about food first when we go.  So we got our timed ticket at 12:30 and went straight away to lunch at 1906.  As you can see by the photos, we sat on the terrace that was covered and heated so we didn't mind the cool temperatures.  Yes, I did eat my roll even though I ordered the panini!  Bonnie's and my mission is to find the best crab cakes in the world, but she also has to check out the burgers and fries.  Fries are her middle name!  Sometimes you just have to indulge!  We'll get into the displays tomorrow.  They were breathtakingly beautiful.  Hope you are having a great day.  I'll talk to you later.
