I never realized how lucky I was to grow up near Longwood Gardens - I assumed every town had a legendary horticulture center and sprawling botanical garden! Longwood is a special place. I can't remember a Christmas that I didn't come to Longwood with my mom. 11 years ago Max started coming with us. We always run into friends here around the holidays. It's pure magic. For me, there’s no better place to get into the holiday spirit! The living tree is not quite as big as the Rock Center Tree, but this is always my favorite Christmas Tree.
