    Default Longwood Gardens 10.3.11 - a few of the conservatory and some non-orchids Part 1

    In keeping with the 4-photo per post , the following are a few of my shots of Longwood Gardens, which has an enormous, beautiful conservatory, courtesy of the late Mr. duPont. The orchid shots are in their proper photography forums (or will be). Thanks for coming along!

    These are a few of my favorite photos from Longwood - you can see I was especially taken with the waterlilies!

    Looks lovely!

    Waterlilies are beautiful things. The huge ones you photo'ed have incredibly wicked looking thorns on their undersides.

    Thanks for sharing. Longwood is a true National Treasure. Hope you have or get to see it in the winter/early spring when they do their orchid displays. The end of March they also host the SEPOS orchid show which is fantastic.

    Great shots Maura !!! I particularly like the the first photo of the water lily pond - such a well-composed picture. Thanks for sharing.
