Maryland Blogger: Wildlife Tree at Longwood Gardens

Wildlife Tree at Longwood Gardens

Wildlife Tree at Longwood Gardens  

 

The 1,000+ acres of gardens and the very large Conservatory are decorated for the holidays for A Longwood Christmas at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.   A large tree in front of the du Pont House was decorated as a Wildlife Tree.

What is a Wildlife Tree?  Decorate a tree of your own with hand made edible ornaments that will be enjoyed by your feathered and furry friends and you will have a Wildlife Tree.  It is fun to see the birds and animals as they eat the ornaments and it will provide opportunities for some photographs that you will want to share.

 

Happy Holidays!

Roy: A festive way to keep the critters coming back for more without having to struggle to find food. Very creative.

Roy, what a fun idea, I've never seen anything like this. It looks like Mr. Squirrel gives his stamp of approval.

Roy, that is very cool, and had not heard of a wildlife tree.  That would be fun to watch birds and other animals enjoying the tree!

Well this is right up our alley. It's so beautiful too - at least for a while till all the little critters come snacking. A wildlife tree is a great idea for many homes, but especially those with some acreage. It goes well with our branding. Hmmnn.   :)   D

Making edible ornaments could be a good project for one of your local groups.

At the Brandywine River Museum of Art, the ladies make thousands of Critter ornaments for their annual fundraiser. Dolores and I were there to purchase some for gifts on Sunday.
