March Visit to Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA
Dolores and I are annual members at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA and try to visit for the major exhibits during the year. We live about 123 miles away so each visit becomes a day trip. This month, we went to Longwood Gardens to see and photograph Orchid Extravaganza, an outstanding annual exhibit on display until the end of March. This is a must see exhibit if you enjoy orchids.
We had lunch in the Cafe and enjoyed the outstanding mushroom soup. When you visit eastern Pennsylvania, you are in mushroom country. Dolores selected two craft beers to share and compare during our lunch. The first was Victory Helles Lager (4.8% Alc. by Vol.) from Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, PA. The second, and our preferred selection, was 60 Minute IPA (6% Alc. by Vol.) from Dogfish Head Brewing Craft Brewery in Milton, DE.
Our dessert was chocolate and raspberry ice cream.
We photographed hundreds of plants and flowers and will share some of those photographs in future blogs.
