This past week I went to one of our national treasures, Longwood Gardens. With the wintry holidays upon us, their indoor and outdoor displays easily perform on a grand scale.
While the Conservatory and other inside rooms are lined with floral holiday delights, I was struck at the end of the photo shoot with the area that exhibits outdoor topiary. Their claim to my attention was instant.
More than usual they seemed to startle me. Maybe it was the light. Maybe it was their newly anointed shapes. But they stand proud and rather stately–grand to be sure.
Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of my blog.
