On a rare foggy & 50 degree January day, I went to Longwood Gardens. I have a membership to the gardens so I like to go as often as possible. When I arrived, I was disappointed to see that the Conservatory was closed. This ended up challenging me to visit more of the gardens, and I saw a few things that I had never seen before!Continue reading “(Another) Gray Day at Longwood Gardens”

Last Friday I went to Longwood Gardens by myself for a quiet afternoon. The outdoor gardens were pretty crowded when I got there, but once the rain started, the people disappeared. The forecast hadn’t called for rain, but luckily I had my umbrella.
I started out in the Garden Walk. Usually I feel rushed because the walkway is so narrow. It was quite peaceful and pleasant with no other people!
One of my FAVORITE places to visit since I moved to the Philadelphia area is Longwood Gardens!
It’s like a zoo for plants!
The orchids were stunning, of course. I got to see the internet-famous rare Ophrys tenthredinifera, or sawfly orchid, pictured below.
