“…I have set myself and guests to work planting flower seeds whenever I have opportunity.”
– P.S. du Pont, 1907 (The Heritage of Longwood Gardens: Pierre S. Du Pont and His Legacy
This week I am in the Philadelphia area with my mom visiting gardens. We went to Longwood Gardens yesterday, today we go to Chanticleer, tomorrow Winterthur. Every time I visit Longwood I’m particularly impressed with their copper beech trees.
I did bring my camera and have been taking photos, but I haven’t been downloading them in the evenings. So you’ll have to be happy with a few cell phone photos while I’m here. As always, Longwood did not disappoint. I was particularly happy to see their vegetable gardens lush with growth, I’ve always visited in the spring when they’ve been pretty bare.
Do you have any great gardens you love to visit over and over again?Filed under Public Gardens to Visit | Comments (4)
