We went to a concert at this beautiful location on 11 April. We hit traffic on the way, so we just had time to have the dinner we had pre-booked, go to the concert, and take a few night time shots in the conservatory.

The concert was by ‘The Crossing’ – a chamber choir, performing a selection of conetmporary music on the theme of ‘light’. Performed in the amazing conservatory at Longwood Gardens, it was a wonderfully atmospheric show.

The place was so amazing that I asked Frankie if we could make a return visit the following weekend. She was up for it, in spite of allergies. I can hardly describe the beauty of the place with its flower gardens, herb garden, open air theatre, lake, tree house and Italian Water Garden. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, so here is a collage of shots from both visits covering the flora.

I will be posting more photos from the gardens when I get home, and will add links in here.

The following Sunday and Monday (26-27 April), we had a sightseeing trip to Washington DC. This will be covered in the next and last illustrated post about this amazing trip to the States.
