There are several beautiful architectural marvels in the state of Pennsylvania that defies our optical senses. One of these gems is Longwood Gardens located in Kennett Square outside of Philadelphia. Just the sight of this sprawling estate takes your breath away as you enter the parking areas. Once owned by Pierre S. Du Pont, whose family immigrated from France. Then settled in the Brandywine section of Pennsylvania during the Colonial era. The family made their fortune through explosive powders and textiles industries. Finally becoming a global leader in the chemical industry. The property is now protected through an endowment granted by the DuPont family.
Since my sister Margaret lives in Philadelphia we enjoy going to Longwood Gardens. Please enjoy my review of Longwood Gardens through the eyes of the camera lense. You may check out the garden’s website for more information.
