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”
Yesterday I came across this article from the Food Network’s food news blog, FN Dish, about Aldi’s advent calendar offerings for the 2018 holiday season. I knew I had to get my hands on a cheese advent calendar.
I went early on the day of the release, November 7th. The store had put out two cases; one was empty when I got there two hours after the store opened. I’m glad I went early!
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!
In October my Sweetie took me to The Lodge at Woodloch for my birthday! We’re going back in a couple of weeks, so I figured I’d finally get around to sharing my experience from our first trip.
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.
