February Favorite #9: Longwood Gardens

When the weather is nice, I enjoy taking my camera out for some pictures. One of my favorite locations is Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. While I prefer to go there in when the weather is warmer, they do have year-round displays, including an amazing Christmas display that everyone should see. However, if you do want to go in the colder months, they do have some beautiful indoor displays. Right now, their main display is the Orchid Extravaganza.

In addition to the gorgeous gardens, Longwood also offers classes, talks, and musical performances. The classes range from โ€˜how to start a vegetable gardenโ€™ to landscape design to identifying plants. Spotlight talks are guided tours where you can learn more about Longwood and their plants. But if you love music, Longwood really is the place to go. They have a variety of performances every year. Jazz, Irish, Pop - itโ€™s difficult to list the range of the performers. Longwood has a calendar of events on their website. I recommend taking a look at it to see if anything interests you.

If you ever get a chance to visit the Philadelphia area, I highly recommend taking some time to check out Longwood Gardens. You need to see their fountain shows, at the very least. Donโ€™t believe me? Check out their Instagram to get a glimpse into what they offer.
