No Card Today...Just Flowers!

Hi friends,

No card to share today...just wanted to share some pictures I took at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania last weekend (check out their website here if interested).  My awesome girlfriend Andrea and I spent the day together and it could not have been more I thought I would share!  (Side note: don't feel obliged to look if you are looking for card posts!)  Maybe some of these flowers will inspire you when making your next card...who knows!

There were so many beautiful colors, I decided to break my pics down into categories (yes, I know, a bit OCD but organization makes me happy!).  I am only posting the best...I probably took three times as many pictures that day!

Here is one to get it started...lots of pretty colors...

Check out this vivid yellow...

These reds were so vibrant!  Poppies and hibiscus...fabulous!

The blues were gorgeous, too.  (I do love hydrangeas!)

(When I took this photo I purposely left the left corner open so I could possibly use it for a card and add a sentiment you ever think that when you take pictures?)


Next!  Doesn't it look like there are pearls on these flowers?

Then there was white...wouldn't these be perfect bouquets for a wedding?  I LOVE how they folded down and bound the leaves...

Check out this gorgeous peach rose...there were SO many roses, I took tons of rose pics! 

Next up...the lovely fountains amid green gardens ...

How about some cool purple flowers?

Finally, it was a special week for lilies at Longwood Gardens...they had lovely displays of lilies in pots and vases inside.  Check out these orange lovelies...

Yes, this little retreat was just what the doctor ordered...rejuvenating and refreshing!  What a wonderful way to spend some much-needed quality time with my best girlfriend...a true gift.

One more little thing...THANK YOU to all who have signed on as followers...I have had my blog for 6 months now and I am at 30 followers!  I'm so flattered, you have no idea!

Have a great day!


  1. Oh, Judy, you're so lucky to live near this lovely place! I've been there only once, years ago when my sister lived in Warrington, PA, but we visited in early spring and the wysteria were just going out.......would love to go again! Now that I've seen your pictures, maybe we should make a special trip - my little sis lives in Rutherford NJ....

    Great post, thanks for sharing these lovelies!
