Place – Longwood Chrysanthemum Festival

Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is having its yearly Chrysanthemum Festival. As always, the conservatory is filled with beautiful flowers and amazing feats of training the chrysanthemums to grow into unique shapes.

Here’s a close-up of one of the techniques they use.

There are shapes of all kinds to marvel over and enjoy. Most of these are created with only one chrysanthemum plant. Amazing!

    1. Thanks so much. I am only just seeing your comment. Another blogging friend told me that comments she was making were not showing up. For some reason the WordPress system threw several of the comments other bloggers had made into my Spam folder. I went back and checked all of them after Susie let me know something was amiss and yours was one that somehow was in that folder. Thanks so much for the comment. I will be sure to check that folder every day to make sure it doesn’t continue to happen, and I am also informing WordPress about the problem.

        1. I think it is a WordPress issue. I take part in challenges where I create a pingback, and a few of mine didn’t show up on the challenge page. I read the comment section, and it seems it is happening to many people. A program through WordPress is deciding people are spam. I will check my spam folder every day or so to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Thanks so much.

    1. They are the last holdout in our area for flowers that bloom through the Autumn. I have some marigolds this year that are still holding on too. Other than that everything is just about finished for this year.
