The World's Greatest Chrysanthemums

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving we saw the end of the Chrysanthemum festival at Longwood Gardens. 

That is more than 1000 chrysanthemums trained into this globe shape.  They said they make two of them each year just in case.  It takes 17 months to grow it.

It was at the entrance to the gardens.

 I snuck in a picture of this bird of paradise, they are always in such perfect shape.

Obviously my favorite ones were purple.
