This past weekend we took advantage of the sunny (though somewhat chilly) weather and took a trip to Longwood Gardens. If you’ve never been, Longwood is over one thousand acres of gardens, topiaries, greenhouse, meadows, and fountains in Kennett Square, PA. It’s just over the Delaware state line, so I like to pretend its a Delaware thing. 😉 But if you are ever in the area for a visit, you must make time to visit Longwood. Even if you think you aren’t interested in flowers, trust me, you will leave this place impressed!
Even though it’s technically Spring, things are just starting to turn green again. So a lot of Longwood’s grounds were still brown and twiggy. But I really enjoy seeing it this way because its a little insight into how much work goes into shaping some of the plants.
Another upside to coming to Longwood in the early Spring is that its usually not too crowded.
Since the outdoor gardens are not yet in bloom, the go-to place is the Conservatory.
By the time we got to the conservatory (it was a long walk!) Izzy was ready for a snack by the waterfalls.
But it wasn’t long before she was begging to go splashing in the ‘muddles’.
It was such a lovely day and we can’t wait to go back when everything is in bloom!
