"Longwood owes its present-day success to the Peirces, who actively pursued a Quaker interest in natural history. By 1850, the site was known as one of the finest collections of trees in the nation, and one of the first public parks, and its aesthetic qualities were as important as its botanical significance."

"Pierre du Pont's purchase of the property to save the trees reflects an acute awareness of plants and gardens dating from childhood. The du Pont family had a long tradition of gardening, and Pierre would turn out to be one of its greatest gardeners."

A few shots from one of my favorite places.

One of my favorite shots from Longwood Gardens. Taken not that while ago. The best place to relax with the family and enjoy the outdoors. Each visit is like a vacation.

This is a bench at Longwood Gardens. I liked the overgrown effect. Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor 50mm f.1.8 prime lens.
