Longwood Garden’s Flowers

By Rachel Choi – 22 Comments
This weekend I went to Longwood Gardens! If anyone is ever in the PA area I would definitely take a trip out there to see all the beautiful flowers in bloom. I was disappointed that I didn’t get to see everything and that the pretty fountains weren’t turned on. But then again I guess it leaves something to look forward to next time. There were so many flowers there that I have never seen before and now I’m inspired to crochet them! Look out here comes my crochet hook! The picture to the right is pretty goofy. It’s of me and a bush trimmed into a dog, lol. There was a whole section of silly bushes like this! longwood

Here are pictures of some of the flowers that I saw!!!

Most of the flowers were in the conservatory (a.k.a. the giant green house). It was laid out very elegantly. I could sit in there all day long and listen to the waterfall! It was so relaxing. Here are pictures of inside the conservatory.

There was even a cool bell tower!!!

I was so excited when I looked in a tree and saw this giant piece of fruit! I’m not exactly sure what it is, maybe a grape fruit? There was also the very photogenic bird that I encountered on one of the trails. It was posing so I thought I have to take a picture of it!

I definitely had a great time! Now I’m ready to start crocheting those flowers! Look out Spring, here comes my crochet hook! Does anyone have a favorite flower?

    Hi Monique!
    I love crochet flowers too! They don’t die, lol.

    I’m a sucker for roses Sarah! But I can’t believe that there were so many interesting flowers, my favorite might chance now and then :)

    That is a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing the beauty with us! I love roses but sunflowers are my favorite flower. I am recovering from surgery so seeing this pretty post brightened my day. Thanks Rachel. :)

    What great photos. (Those would be great for a “relaxation’ screen saver) I think any flower would be pretty. A lilly would be nice. I don’t think there ar enough crochet patterns for flowers out there.

    bet you could!

    Thank you so much for sharing your trip to Longwood Gardens! I live in Lancaster, about an hour’s drive. We used to go every year, and I still haven’t seen everything!

    I haven’t been there for several years now – your post sent me back to wonderful memories of finding hidden places, incredible beauty, and I hope you got to see the fountain show!

      Hey Tammy!
      I was so disappointed they didn’t have the fountains on when I went :( I heard so many great things about the fountains and the fountain show with fireworks. O well, next time I’ll have to call before I go and ask them if they turned their fountains on lol. It leaves something to look forward to next time :)
