Longwood Gardens – Grounds

I had the opportunity to visit Longwood Gardens, the awe-inspiring horticultural monument built with the DuPont fortune. It was simply amazing: world-class greenhouses, beautiful grounds with immaculate tree houses, ponds, and mansions, and the best collection of orchids I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Mackworth Island has, for the first time in memory, a family of foxes on the island. Perhaps it’s due to the return of turkeys to the island, or maybe it is the cause of the suspiciously small groundhog population.
