Just got back home a few minutes ago!

As soon as I left Longwood - Reed arrived!!!

So - I turned around and went through again... this time - no crowd!

We had the place pretty much to ourselves by the end of the night!

Had a great time, as Mike said the food, company, and companionship were top of the line!

And then REED arrived...

First - he was almost eaten by the giant head and almost lost his ManBag!!!



But he was able to get away just in time...



He gave it his ALL for every photo he took!



However...
...as the night progressed...
...Reed could not help but notice a recurring shape in many of the flowers...





I would post more... but I would like to keep this thread out of the Frontier!

Your camera is amazing Steve...that is why, I need an UPGRADE....by the way, can u make me a print of Darlene & myself in front of the Sled. Thanks.

It is sad but this is will probably be the last event of the year for me...It was a wonderful year sharing 2008 with my close FRIENDS...thank you so much. I wonder how many calories was consumed this year.

We had an amazing time with everyone at Longwood. The lights were brilliant! I am always astonished by the gardeners' creativity! This is a must see for the holiday season. Reed, sorry we missed you! We haven't seen you in months (I'm glad the children left the gardens before you got there! Parents would have to do a lot of explaining with some of the picture shots!) See you soon!
