Vacation Pictures (Part 1) ~ Longwood Gardens


My partner & I made our yearly trip to "Longwood Gardens" in Pennsylvania last week. Missed the roses again this year which are in full bloom in June. I sprained my left knee jogging in June and was recovering from that all month. Everything else was simply gorgeous and I will let the pictures speak for themselves.









PS: I'm hoping to make another trip in the Fall (beginning of October). Longwood does a great harvest theme with pumpkins EVERYWHERE. Enjoy! :-)

Love it!!! You'll have to check out Winterthur someday when you're up. I think you'd love it and it's very close to Longwood.

Oh those pictures and place are just gorgeous.
I love the glass house, such a beautiful one.
I would love to go there.
But the fall sounds like it would be great with all the pumpkins.
I am so glad you had a wonderful time.
Hope you and your mom are recovering nicely.
