Longwood Gardens Conservatory

We did a quick go through at the Longwood Gardens Conservatory as we were concentrating on the Tulips outside. It was also quite crowded inside, so I mainly concentrated on Flower Closeups inside. Here I am showing some overall inside landscapes of a few of the interior rooms when there was a quick moment with fewer people around. Because it was darker on floor level, when I had the glass above showing, being much brighter, I made another layer in Photoshop and brought back the “Blue” of the sky in the glass.

Longwood Gardens Conservatory At Christmas Time

I enjoy going through the conservatory anytime of the year, but for Christmas it transforms into a colorful fun filled place to visit. It gets crowded, but in the morning it is easier to get photos before the crowds show up for the evening Christmas light displays. Usually I concentrate on plants in the different sections of the Conservatory. The Conservatory spans 195,668 square feet—or 4.5 acres and there are many areas from tropical to arid, to lush gardens and orchids. But at Christmas time all the areas are decorated for the season.
