Christmas at Longwood Gardens

Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and time with family. I spent my time in Pennsylvania with friends and family.

During my stay, my sister and nieces and nephew visited Longwood Gardens. Have you ever been there?  Longwood is a well-known destination to domestic and international visitors. It is located on over 1000 acres which include 20 inside and 20 outside gardens. There are over 11,000 plants and trees including fountains at Longwood. They also host various fountain displays, firework displays, music concerts, flower shows and many other activities. During the holidays, they have a gorgeous Christmas light display that I love to see. We also had lunch at The Terrace located within Longwood.  Of course, I had to order the Mushroom Soup since Kennett Square, PA is the mushroom capital of the world!  It was delicious!

If you ever get a chance I would highly recommend visiting here. It is located in Kennett Square, PA. More information can be found here.

Here are some photos that I took during my visit.  (I tried not to upload too many photos)




This poinsettia tree is so stunning  in person!

White Hydrangeas


This was one of my favorite displays, love the bows tied on the back of the chairs and lovely centerpieces

Some outside gardens

Hope you enjoyed your visit.  Well I better go get my storage tubs in the garage and begin to decorate for the holidays!  Have a wonderful week.
