Longwood Christmas Colors
Christmas 2010

The day after Thanksgiving 2010 we toured Longwood Gardens and captured colorful photos of the annual Christmas display. A combination of flowering hydrangeas, poinsettias, amaryllis, cyclamen and narcissus make for an especially spectacular view. Enjoy these photos of the colorful blooms we enjoyed and consider a visit to Longwood so you can take a look for yourself.

Justin Hartz led a Christmas carol sing-along in the Grand Ballroom while playing Longwood Garden's 10,010 pipe Aeolian Organ. 

Here we see one of the nine pipe chambers that line the right wall of the room shown in the photo above.
