That's an orchid on the right. I didn't want to do too much with the Instagram filters with that one because the original colors were so magnificent that the filters actually made it look worse, or dull.

She wasn't even along on that particular day, so that would've been quite a trick.

One of the DuPont family members purchased it in the early 20th century and basically developed it into what it is today. He died in the 1950's and it became a foundation that is open to the public (for a daily entrance fee or an annual membership) year-round. Here's the Longwood Gardens home page and a wikipedia page.

It's free and easy. The collage was put together with a separate free app, Photo Collage Free.

No problem. I mentioned above that the collage was actually done with a separate app, Photo Collage Free.

Loving the pictures of the garden! Anything to do with the beauty of the outdoors is good in my book.

Incredible pictures!

It is hard to believe that the grounds were actually part of a residence! How great that it continues to be a place for so many to go enjoy the beauty of the property.
