Editor-at-Large Therese Ciesinski offers at virtual tour of stunning Longwood Gardens during the holiday season.
Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, once the private estate of Pierre S. DuPont, is amazing at any time of year, but never more so than at Christmas. Most winter gardens are studies in brown, gray, and white, but Longwood is at it’s most glorious, jaw-dropping colorful. A Christmas visit should be on every gardener’s bucket list.
These photos are only a sample of all there is to see at Longwood’s Christmas display. It is on view until January 12, 2014. Admission is charged; timed tickets are required. See Longwoodgardens.org.
