The Orchid Extravaganza

I have only shared a few images from our adventure in Longwood Gardens
on February 20, 2014.
 
Longwoods seasonal display right now is called
The Orchid Extravaganza.
We have season passes, so we try to visit as each of the seasons change.
 
Located in Kennett Square, Pa. it is about a 2 hour ride from home.
It's a quiet, peaceful ride, with lots to see along the way.

We took a lot of pictures... 
so I'm just going to do a "picture explosion", I hope you enjoy it!!
 





















 
 
Pictures of the hubs and I together here at Longwood tomorrow!!
