Longwood Gardens

On New Year's Day, we took a trip to Longwood Gardens with Ibbie and our little hazmat crew member/gnome/Oompa Loompa, Cole. Cole's little outfit was so precious on the hanger then so odd on. But she loves it and really likes to keep the hood up. I really don't like to fight about what she wears (seems pointless) so we didn't.

Longwood Gardens is easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. We'll be back. And often. Our zoo options are limited here which is a bit sad considering our love and frequent trips to the Memphis Zoo but the gardens help. They aren't right around the corner so it's an adjustment but adjustments are to be expected. 
The Green wall was very cool but I just kept laughing at the ridiculousness of the scene. With Cole's outfit, the various doors (all bathrooms), and the plants growing off the walls it looked like something out of a Brave New World or Hunger Games. 
The conservatory was nice and warm so we took our time wandering through.
Outside was cold, very cold. We moved quickly and didn't linger.


  1. your hair is so long! That garden is lovely and the kiddos are even prettier!
