Longwood Gardens

One of the places that I visited with Jonathan's parents last week was Longwood Gardens. They're less than 90 minutes away, and a very interesting place. The story behind how they transferred from family to family, the upkeep, how they were turned into a public exhibit, and all kinds of things are so interesting there! There were three treehouses, a pipe organ with 10,0001 pipes, and a tower with giant bells. And that's not even considering the hundreds of thousands of flowers and topiaries at the place! We saw almost the entire thing, and it was really neat. I even tried my hand at photographing some flowers.
