Enjoyed this post tremendously. Am planning an early September trip to Longwood Gardens. Have not been there since teenage years when they were a favorite destination.


Interesting photos and use of hydrangea. Happy GTS!


Longwood Gardens look like a wonderful place. I would love to visit the gardens. When I saw the Amsonia, I was hooked. I love that plant!

Digital cameras are great for gardeners - a visual wish list is a cool idea.

The hydrangeas as groundcovers are stunning.


I love the Hydrangeas as groundcovers. Never thought of it.

Aren't computers and digital cameras great.

When I can't think of a post, I just go through my digital pictures.


Acey - I don't know how old you are, but since I was a teenager there are many more areas open. I live so close and don't visit nearly enough; getting the season pass has encouraged me to visit much more frequently this summer. It is a wonderful place and I'm sure you will LOVE your visit!

Thanks for stopping by, Aiyana. Happy GTS (a bit belated)!

Kate - Longwood is well worth a visit. People come from all over the world! I love the amsonia, too. That is a must-have for me!

Chigiy - I'm not sure how they accomplished the hydrangea groundcover, but it does look great. I just entered the 20th century with a digital camera in December and I'm really enjoying it.
