It’s been seven long years since a visit to Longwood Gardens and I have the itch. These pictures are from a visit in July and I’m thinking this year a late spring visit is in order. If you haven’t been, you need to go. If you’ve been, you need to go back. Who’s up for a road trip?
Pierce brothers Joshua and Samuel planted an arboretum on the farm in 1789. Then, facing destruction, Pierre du Pont purchased the property in 1906 to preserve the trees and became the man behind the gardens that we love today. The Longwood Gardens' Website
