Pinable Inspiration – Longwood Gardens

Go ahead, pin these photos. Nothing better for inspiration than a look at something nice.


Whether walking through the cooling ferns or drooling over the beds of Columbine, Aquilegia…

Longwood Gardens

Volunteer dead heading the Columbine.






This trip I visited 5 named gardens in the Greater Philadelphia region. I already posted on Winterthur in Delaware:

And the Morris Arboretum, The Long and Pretty Views at The Morris Arboretum, but this series of posts will look at inspirational images from: Scott Arboretum (also featured last year), Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens, and Chanticleer (an eleven part series). One trip is never enough to these wonderful gardens. I visited the same time last year, but the bloom time is a bit different. Well designed gardens such as these will have beauty all year round, so seasonal visits are also recommended.

    Very inspirational Donna. For fun I tried doing a few bumble bee shots the other day. They were moving so quickly that the camera was spinning in circles. I now have an even greater appreciation for all the amazing bee shots you include in your posts. Have a nice weekend!

    It’s such a beautiful place! I feel lucky to be able to visit it as often as I do. I’m excited to see your post on Jenkins. A friend of mine was an intern/fellow there a few years ago, but I haven’t been to Jenkins since then.

    It’s been years since I visited, but it’s one of my favorite gardens. When I was there, I loved the mailboxes placed throughout so visitors could get information on the plantings. There was also a fountain there which I tried to replicate in my own garden. A magical place.

    Stunning building and equally stunning windows. The columns I like the best, must have taken alot of care to grow.

  15. Inspiration indeed…I can’t wait to visit these gardens!!
