My visit to Longwood Gardens continues today, only this time there aren’t any flowers. These are some of the extra little things that I saw during my walk that caught my eye.
The photo below was one of several hanging lamps that adorned one of the garden sections. You can see the clear roof of the conservatory above.
I took the next one in the ballroom. It was very dark in there, but standing under one of the chandeliers, you’d never know it, would you? Look at all the rays shooting out from the circle’s edge. And I loved the pale pink color. It was more of a champagne, actually.
This picture was taken while strolling down to the treehouse. There’s a little old-fashioned water fountain that awaits thirsty visitors. I like the moss-covered brick.
And below we have an adornment on one of the bridges (left photo) and a playful ornament above one of the fountains in the children’s garden.
And speaking of embellishments, I had some business cards made by my lab where I get my photos processed. I use mpix.com when I sell my prints. They did a good job on my cards, but my husband took one look at it and told me this:
“Well, you could have picked a better flower, you know. This one looks like it has a giant hard-on.” Oh, he’s ever the funny one, he is. The flower I used for the card can be seen here. I posted it on Tuesday and never would have thought it looked like that. Well, until now. Oy vey.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
