Longwood Gardens

Sam and I visited Longwood Gardens yesterday to view the Orchid Extravaganza. What a show! Thousands of orchid blossoms in bloom, with the air filled with their fragrance.  The show was delightful and a great inspiration at this time of the year.  It brought some sunshine into a slightly foggy day and time of year.  Here are some of the photos I took while there.

  1. Where is this place located? It's GORGEOUS!! What a special treat! Such amazing inspiration and I LOVE the blue poppy! Now I'm going to have to figure out a way to incorporate one into one of my paintings... :)

    1. Thanks, Rebecca. Longwood Gardens are an hour SW of Philadelphia. Give it a Google and you can find out how to get there.
