Longwood Gardens: Part 2

 The simple beauty of the water lily.
 Walk along the garden path inside the Conservatory.
 'Lights' ... we'll see them after our dinner.
There are 6 clusters of clear glass balls
all changing color at the same time.
The light show starts at dusk.

 Reflection of a Lily.
Oriental Lotus
 Lotus Seed Pod

I didn't see the dragon fly until I cropped the photo.
 ... ... ...
Dinner at 1906
 Dinner in the formal restaurant at Longwood
to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary.

 Our cocktails were perfect summer beverages.

 What we're saying about Restaurant 1906
 The blending of flavors was excellent.
Fresh herbs were from the Longwood garden
and used to infuse the appetizers and
main entrees (and even the cocktails!)
We rate this restaurant two thumbs up.

 Great presentations all around.
 The crab cakes were excellent.


  1. Lovely and apart from the food which has left me drooling we loved the lily and the reflection picture. Nice post. Have a great Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly
