Saturday Day Trip to Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA

 

Chef Dolores and I were up early this morning for a day trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. We wanted to see and photograph the annual Orchid Extravaganza Exhibit, the National Clivia Show and the blue poppies that only bloom for a few days each year.

We had beautiful weather for our trip and the exhibits were outstanding. They did have a very large crowd of visitors. We stopped at Applebee's in Kennett Square for a late lunch before heading home. By the way, the food at Applebee's was outstanding.

Hey, Roy Kelley 

I am reading your post as I am hosting an open house. While this open house will prove to be productive, I am jealous of the manner in which you spent your day. Beautiful photo!

I hope your open house was productive. Photographing flowers is more fun but is not financially rewarding.

Hi Roy - it sounds like you and Dolores had a wonderful day out and about!  I did not bring all of my orchids with me so I'm going to be looking for some that can stay in the house.

Hello Roy - I would call this day a success on many accounts.  May your St Patrick's Day be as wonderful or better.

Never heard of blue poppies, Roy Kelley ! Your photos are wonderful!  I am hopeful spring will happen soon.  We still have 2 feet of snow in our yard!

A lovely way to spend the day, Roy... and your pictures are truly wonderful. Still loving the look of those blue poppies.

That blue poppy is absolutely amazing, Roy.  And, the scene in the picture you posted in comment #5 is stunning!
