Longwood Gardens, PA
On one of the last days of a Spring that was still feeling very much like Winter, we ventured out of Philadelphia to the famed Longwood Gardens. We found at the gardens a glorious, glass-covered paradise inside their enormous series of winter gardens. It is among the largest in the world - 4.5 acres under glass - and shelters 20 indoor gardens and 5,500 types of plants. The Conservatory was built in 1919 to be a "perpetual Eden" by Pierre S. du Pont and has since been periodically expanded and renovated.
Even though there are a large amount of photos below, you have to believe me when I say it is but a tip of the iceberg! It was just a phenomenal space.
