Tomorrow is the Fourth of July! Since we will be grilling and laying poolside with our families we wanted to say Happy Independence day to everyone! Remember tonight Longwood Gardens will be hosting fireworks as well as there “Light” feature throughout the gardens! “Wander through a field of light reminiscent of flowers, discover a meadow of glowing towers changing hues, and delight in a shower of cascading raindrops fashioned from delicate lights as you are immersed in a new and truly unique garden experience. Both indoors and outdoors, by day and by night, Light! will change the way you see gardens.” For more information visit www.longwoodgardens.org. I will leave you with a picture I recently shot in Black&White of our beautiful town of West Chester!
