Longwood Gardens

Today we went to spectacular Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Magnolia and cherry trees are in full blossom, and tulips and daffodils are blooming this time of year. The colors were gorgeous, and the air was fragrant with the scent of flowers.

Visions of beauty from a tropical climate

Orchids in every hue

These are simply otherworldly

Beautiful blues and greens
