I knew our Longwood Pass was going to run out
sometime in April....
but I wasn't sure when.
So on Monday, April 1st, since Warren had off because of Easter
and We, Chelsea and our Moms headed out
across the fields to Kennett Square
to visit the gardens.
I held my breath as I asked the lady
with the scanner to see when our
pass would expire this month.
Honestly, I was thinking at the end of the month.
"It expires on April 5th!"
That was close.
I'm so glad we went when we did!
I'll renew my pass, for sure.
We go often enough to make it worth our while.
But we had delightful weather for our visit.
There's still not much to see outside
but the Conservatory is stunning.
We are thinking two weeks and the outside should
really come to life.
This time of the year it is fun to go often because
it is almost like you are watching things grow
right in front of your eyes.
Hey wait...you are!
Well, I'm thankful for a place this awesome
so close to home.
We each have our favorite spots to sit and ponder
life in the gardens.
There is just something about being in a place
with so much Created beauty
in your face that makes you stop
Perhaps the relaxed and calm feeling one gets there
is because of
all of the oxygen being
put out by the trees.
Those massive and delightful trees!
Filtering our air and keeping it clean.
Longwood Gardens would likely not exist
if it weren't for those trees.
Mr. DuPont bought that property to save the
fabulous trees from being cut down.
True story....or at least it is what they
tell you when you visit.
Did you know that one tree produces about
260 pounds of oxygen per year?
Well, now you do!
They filter out carbon dioxide from our air too.
So perhaps this is the real reason a trip to the
mountains (or Longwood Gardens) is so refreshing?
What an awesome Creator we have!
