ActiveRain MeetUp at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA

 

I received a message from Gita Bantwal advising that Joan Cox would be visiting with her in the Philadelphia area and suggested a MeetUp at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Dolores and I met with Gita and Joan on Saturday, July 7, 2018 and spent several hours touring the gardens, having lunch and getting acquainted.

The weather was beautiful, the mushroom soup, a Longwood Gardens specialty, was delicious and we took several hundred photographs. Joan learned that you need to have a spare battery for your camera when you visit Longwood Gardens. We agreed that this is a great location for MeetUps and all of us plan future visits.
