Snow is in the forecast, which means fall is passing by. I thought I’d revel in it a bit more by sharing some photos I took on a recent trip to Longwood Gardens. Spanning over 900 acres of Pennsylvania countryside, Longwood Gardens was once the estate of Pierre DuPont. An avid gardener and agriculturist, Mr. DuPont built the gardens, the conservatories, and preserved the trees on the property, which now stand proud and strong at 200 years old.
Given my love of locally grown produce, the edible garden was my favorite part of the property. Swiss chard, tomatoes, peppers, and all manner of veggies grow beautifully and in abundance.
Hope you enjoy the photos – even though the day was gray and cloudy, the gardens speak.
(This post is for you, Natalie! May you find comfort, peace and God’s presence as you take your own trip through the gardens this morning. I love you!)
