Sigh! Another post on my travel wishlist...

Mary Ann

I love Longwood Gardens. We are frequent visitors there. Have you enjoyed the nighttime fountain shows?


Hi Mary Ann - Isn't it a wonderful place? I was there with a friend on Saturday and we stayed for the fountains. The music was all Gershwin and it was fantastic!

Mary Ann

Chopin is another good one to see.


I would love that one too, Mary Ann! Have you/will you see the fireworks this year?


Thanks for the tour! Longwood is my favorite garden. Just don't tell anyone at Rutgers Gardens. I might get fired. Wait a sec. Can volunteers be fired?
