Longwood Gardens

One of the greatest reasons that I enjoy the area where I live in the Brandywine Valley has to be Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA. It is only a ten minute drive away and a member pass is the only way to go--unlimited visits all year. I love visiting it any season of the year. We are so lucky to live near such a treasure; I can't say enough good things about it.

One of the most popular seasons is the springtime, which brings crowds of people to enjoy the warm weather and new growth. The plant collection is unbelievable and the flowers are stunning.

It is a breathtakingly beautiful place--words can't do it justice. In the forty-four years that we have lived in this area, it is the place that we have visited most often and at least half of all my photos are taken there. Everywhere is a Kodak moment. As a flower afficionado, superlatives are over the top--you have to see it to believe it.   

The two photo collages above were produced with an elegant little program called Photoscape that can be downloaded free from the web.
