I went to Longwood Gardens near Philadelphia, PA on the weekend. We stayed with friends in Reading, PA about an hour away. With the head, there was a mist each morning, so I had a chance to take some photos of the lovely picket fences and house lines in Roger and Irene's neighbourhood.
At the Longwood entrance are some beautiful flower gardens - this year there was a bed of verbena bonariensis. The butterflies were constant on the bed, so gave me the opportunity to get a few butterfly shots as well.
The big attraction this time of year is the water lily courtyard. There are hundreds of flowers and likely a hundred varieties of water lily, plus all kinds of water garden plants. I'm posting a sampling of the water lilies on display.
More to come...
