Longwood Gardens – September 2013

I love this place.  Longwood Gardens is one of the most picturesque places I think I’ve ever been….any season.  When Groupon had a 50% off admission deal going on, I snatched it up without second thought.  It was an added bonus that we got to enjoy it with our good friends. 🙂
