Selecting flowers to photograph at Longwood Gardens

Last night, we had severe storm warnings, tornado warnings and flash flood alerts. Very unusual March weather in Montgomery County, Maryland. When we have bad weather, we think about a favorite retreat, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. This is one of our favorite day trip or weekend travel destinations. Longwood gardens is about 127 miles from Kentlands, our home community in Gaithersburg.

The current exhibit in the Conservatory at Longwood Gardens is Orchid Extravaganza. This is an outstanding show and well worth the trip. If you can be in the area, check the schedule of events on their website:  www.longwoodgardens.org

If you have photos from a favorite place, please share them in the comments. If you see a favorite among my pictures, tell me about it.

Roy and Dolores Kelley visited Longwood Gardens on Saturday, February 12. 2011 to see the Orchid Extravaganza in the Conservatory. A wonderful world class exhibit. Canon PowerShot G11 camera. Photograph by Roy Kelley.

Hi Roy - What, you couldn't find any flowers to photograph out in the rain?  : )  Fabulous photos, and the above water lilies are absolute amazing!

Good Saturday morning, Chris and Linda. I took hundreds of orchid pictures at the Maryland Home and Garden Show on Friday. The Maryland Orchid Society has a major show and sale in progress this weekend.

 Life is better when there are flowers to photograph!

Hi Roy, I'm really thinking about stopping at Longwood Gardens in May when I drive up to get my son from school. Everytime you post something about it I got a flood of good memories from my childhood.
