My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania


Longwood Gardens at Kennett Sq., Pennsylvania

I have visited this garden about five times. Once at Christmas, and the rest through out the year. The photos in this blog were taken in February 2012 during their annual orchid display. Of course there many other plants, but orchids are my favorite. Fortunately, we were blessed with a springlike day.





















   










Lots of people enjoying the orchids.

Views of the outside, snow free.
  

Longwood Gardens is so huge, you might need an entire day to see everything. The maps are small, but gives you an indication of how huge the site is.
