Longwood Gardens in Early Spring

Spring is starting to erupt at 
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

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!

Isn't it just amazing how seeing flowers after a long winter can just lift your spirits, that is how I felt after we visited that garden in Arkansas. Wow you got some gorgeous shots of those flowers and it looks by the background that there were flowers everywhere, so lovely!

Such a nice photo of both of you under the orchids! All the flowers are just beautiful! It takes a talented person to create a sphere of orchids! Thanks for sharing!

Oh, these are such lovely photos of beautiful flowers. Ones to want to do some graphics with. I of course, especially love the one of you two. I love the happiness that shines in your faces. This was a wonderful introduction to spring. Our spring hasn’t really come yet.
Thanks for this uplifting one!
Blessings and hugs!
