A Longwood Christmas, Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PennsylvaniaIt’s not too late (if you hurry) to catch A Longwood Christmas at (no surprise) Longwood Gardens, 1001 Longwood Road, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

Thousands of floating cranberries, apples, and gilded walnuts create an intricate mosaic in the grand tradition of a French parterre garden.
