Suggestion #4: visit a conservatory on a sunny day
A wonderful treat for the senses in the middle of winter is to take a day and go to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. They have the most wonderful conservatory. According to their literature, it shelters 20 indoor gardens with 5,500 types of plants within 4.5 acres of glass-enclosed space.
I hope you enjoy the following photos nearly as much as I enjoyed being there!
the lawn in the main building - sort of makes you want to take off your shoes and walk on it
the silver garden
phalaenopsis in the orchid room
a collection of orchids and bromeliads
a display of spring flowers
the tropical room
carnivorous plants, beautiful but deadly if you're an insect
Doesn't it feel more like spring already?
