On Saturday the Roomie, her MIL and Bean took us to Longwood Gardens.

I had a great time hanging out with Shamy too.  They are more fun than they look.

Look they almost held hands under the Wisteria Tree.

The gardens are on 1077 acres of land once owned by Pierre DuPont who was a great champion of Horticultural causes.

He began Longwood Gardens with the purchase of Pierce Woods that was originally slated for demolition but he purchased the land and it’s trees to conserve the vast collection of trees planted by the Pierce family.

So many beautiful flowers and plants.  The orchids are a prized collection.  So if you are in town for a visit…they’d love to see you there!
