We visited the gardens on Sunday. If you missed the first post, it's worth peeking at here. Today starts with yellow, which is becoming a much loved color for me. It reminds me of warmth, summer and happiness.
This is an Orchid The next two are Lilies
These were quite beautiful, I don't remember the name of this flower.
The next three flowers are Hibiscus, they were perfectly stunning.

Daffodils and Tulips
Inside the Conservatory the grass is lush green.
It was a pretty day, inside and outside the Conservatory. The sun was bright, the sky was blue and it was about 60 degrees outside.
During March, the Orchids are on display in the gardens,
it is the largest and most diverse display of orchids I have ever seen.
We visited on Sunday, here we are surrounded by orchids but there is a gorgeous display of spring flowers as well.
The next three pictures are of the purple Poppy Anemone, these were my favorites.
The next three pictures are of the Himalayan Blue Poppies This poppy is native to the high elevations of the Himalayan mountains and are rarely cultivated outside their natural habitat. Given the right conditions, they can thrive in gardens located in the northern regions of North America and Europe. These were a real treat to see. These pink spheres are constructed with Orchids Pink Shasta Daisies A wall of Orchids It is difficult to express with words how you feel as you walk through the gardens. The paths are illuminated with sunlight, the air is filled with the sweet, delightful fragrance from the flowers... and colors, only mother nature herself can create.
All of the displays are breathtaking, a delight for all the senses! More from Longwood Gardens tomorrow!
