Joe and I went to Longwood Gardens today to walk around since it was a nice day. Longwood is located in Kennett Square, Pa. It was the home of Henry Francis DuPont and is now open to the public. We are members so can go anytime we want! It is always beautiful as the displays change with the seasons. Hope you enjoy this virtual tour!!! This bed was aqualegia (columbine) and snapdragons.
 Here are some close ups of the aqualegias. We have several of these in our gardens too, it is Joe's favorite perrenial. Many times it will reseed itself.
