About a month ago, Andrew and I went with his mom to Longwood Gardens for the Mum festival, which means we have officially experienced all four seasons at Longwood! I haven’t considered myself a fan of mums but I’d seen some photos from the festival and the colors were so striking that I knew I wanted to see it in person.
This shouldn’t have surprised me but there are SO many varieties of mums and some of them look nothing like mums. The main conservatory had a multi-tiered wheel of mums and it was just so fascinating to see how different they can be. I no longer feel like I can make a blanket “I don’t like mums” statement.

And after working up an appetite…
A mini toasted marshmallow s’mores cup from the Terrace Cafe. Worth every calorie.
