Visiting Gardens and museum USA Philadelphia
Posted on Jul 02, 2013 by
I like visiting the public gardens around the Philadelphia area. I visit Longwood Gardens the most. Pierre DuPont was the owner and designer of the gardens. I visit it often
because of the ever changing and large collection of flowers. Longwood Gardens also has a large conservatory making visits during winter enjoyable. I consider it a first rate public garden. Nearby is Winterthur Museum and Gardens. This was the home of Henry DuPont. Winterthur is also worthwhile to visit especially in May when the azaleas are in bloom. DuPont planted many azaleas within the forests of the gardens. Winterthur is a naturalistic garden that contrasts nicely to the formal gardens of Longwood.
I also visited some of the many other public gardens around Philadelphia.
