Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. As for me, it was a great day off and I wanted to share a peek into our morning at Longwood Gardens. It's become our tradition for Kevin and I to visit the gardens for just an hour or 2 before heading to family and this year was once again a sight to see!
I know I'm surrounded with the flowers 7 days a week but I admit that I can't get enough. Blue is my favorite color so I especially love the blue flowers like these Salvia and baby blue eucalyptus.
I fell in love with Camellias and because we usually only use the foliage in our floral designs (the flower blooms for such a short time it does not make a great cut flower for commercial use) it was so nice to see the actual flowers blooming on the plants.
This had to be my favorite part of the display this year! This long "dinner" table was set with a moss runner and then begonia and orchids running the entire length of this enormous table. I especially loved the tall silver tinted curly willow branches.
The orchid room is amazing. I especially loved these oncidium orchids. The color was a mix between a burgundy and a brown - so pretty!
Anyone that knows me knows that roses are my favorite flowers and I always enjoy taking close ups of this particular variety because of how gracefully they arc. When this bloom opens it will measure a solid 5" across too!
Once again Longwood Garden's did a wonderful job on their Christmas display. If you have never been to Longwood Garden's ~ you really must go!
