A visit to Longwood Gardens

A visit to Longwood Gardens

It’s no secret that I love love love flowers (!). Part of that was growing up with a grandmother who loved gardening, and who passed it down through the generations. But I think another part of it has been the last five years living in New York City: I finally realized just how rejuvenating the sight of fresh blooms can be after a long, harsh winter. Christine Amorose at Longwood Gardens in bloom in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Finding all of the flowers in peak bloom has been one of my pastimes over the past few years, and one of my favorite discoveries on the East Coast was Longwood Gardens, located about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia. It feels more like a museum of flowers than just your average garden. First of all, it’s huge and sprawling and full of fresh air. Secondly, the conservatory is so perfectly tended and full of magic like hanging balls of hydrangea blooms–seriously. We visited at peak tulip bloom, but I think it would be a truly lovely place to wander in all seasons.

    YASS I love Longwood! I live in Philly and it’s where my fiance and I took our engagement photos. I always think of Longwood this way, if I spent time and money flying someplace like Europe and spent a day at Longwood, I wouldn’t be disappointed. How lucky are we that we have it here on the east coast?!
