Longwood Gardens undergoing changes

A visit to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square  PA found big construction changes going on with the buildings, which will be interesting to follow on their website.

But it also featured the restored orchid room, with it's ever popular flowers, and a light installation by Bruce Munro. We only had time to see the installations inside the Conservatory. One was made of plastic bottles with fiber optic cables inside to change the lights, and the other was a sea of metal discs with fleeting shadows on the surface.

As for the famous lighted fountain show with musical background, I can't say much for the choice of music that night. It was so loud and annoying that we left mid-program.  Better luck next time, because they have had some really nice programs in the past.

Carolyn, good information, and if the music was too loud, I would have left too.

Hi Carolyn- I would love to see the orchid area!!!!   Maybe next time they will choose more soothing music. I'm pretty sure I would not have appreciated the loud music.
