A Visit to Longwood Gardens, Kennet Square

Two of our avid readers and longtime customers visited Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square during a family vacation. Talented 15 year old Johanna Kiska sent in some absolutely beautiful photos she took while walking around the gardens and asked to share them with our readers. Scroll down and take a look at photo collage.

Before you take a look at the photos, you should probably learn a little more about Longwood Gardens. The gardens sit on over 1000 acres, outside of Philadelphia. Open to visitors year round,  there are special events for every season. Longwood Gardens features many conservatory gardens including Acacia Passage, Banana House, Indoor Children’s Garden, Mediterranean Garden, Orangery, Orchid House among others. There are also hundreds of fountains that put on a dancing water show several times a day.

Only two hours from the Wilkes-Barre area, Longwood Gardens is a MUST see for all garden lovers. The trip is easy and a great idea for the whole family.

Here is a small taste of what you can discover.

World’s most beautiful gardens

As the saying goes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - Edward's Garden Center

Each and everyone of us is unique and has a different outlook on life. Because of our different experiences, likes, dislikes etc, each one of us finds different things beautiful. Our customer photo contest that ended at the beginning of the week is a great example. We had beautiful images of flower gardens, rock gardens, fairy gardens, vegetable gardens and many more. Each one of them was beautiful in its own way.

As different as beautify can be to each person, there are things that are universally appreciated as beautiful. Flowers and tranquilty are definitely on the list.

Looking through some amazing gardens online, we stumbled across this video from a few years ago. It displays gorgeous images of gardens from all over the world, set to relaxing music. If you have about 8 minutes, sit back, relax and enjoy.

Some of our favorites from the video:

  • Crathes Castle Gardens in Banchory, Scotland
  • Zhuozheng Yuan in Suzhou, China
  • Giardini di Villa d’Este in Tivoli, Italy
  • Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai, China
  • Dubai Miracle Garden in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Hampton Court Gardens in London, England (from personal experience 🙂 )
  • Exbury Gardens in Hampshire, England
  • Mae Fah Luang Garden in Pa Kluay, Thailand
