The Longwood Gardens

During our stay in Philly we drove out to the Longwood Gardens to visit Pierre du Pont's estate. The estate is about 1,077 acres of meadows, woodlands and houses (including a massive greenhouse that spans 4 acres). 

We walked through the meadows to a small farmhouse at the edge of the fields and saw lots of flowers on the way.

This picture is from about halfway through the meadows. If you look REALLY closely you can almost see the teeny tiny farmhouse in the distance...

After traversing through the fields to the teeny tiny farmhouse we walked around the giant greenhouse full of exotic flowers and plants. 

When we were done smelling the flowers we piled into the car and to our home away from home in Philly to rest our feet and start packing up to head back to NJ the next morning.
