Longwood Gardens

Yesterday was a gloriously beautiful day. We went to Longwood Gardens after church and had a delightful day. It was very crowded, due to the nice weather and the holiday weekend.


This year they have treehouses. This is the only one we saw yesterday, as the kids say, "we have a family pass now, we can come back whenever we want!"


This is the Italian Water Garden. It is one of my favorite spots.



The new children's garden is open and amazing. We can't wait to go back. Kyle especially loved the water features.
The children's garden is beautifully made, with bronze sculptures for railings and interesting details. In the perennial garden there were lovely peonies.



Delightful rose arbors.

An interesting hybrid geranium.

I love walking through the giant topiary garden, it makes me think of Alice in Wonderland.

It was a lovely day. I can't wait to go again!

  1. We were there today. It was great. Since we got there at 10am it wasn't terribly crowded but there were lines out the door when we left at 1pm.

    I walked and walked. It was great to be able to do it!
