Enjoy Spring in the Brandywine Valley at Longwood Gardens



The Brandywine Valley has more smiles per miles than any other countryside region I can think of.  Today I’m only sharing upcoming events at Longwood Gardens.  Later I will add some of the other attractions’ special events for this summer.  If you are  tired of looking at dead trees and brown lawns this spring then you definitely need to hurry to our area.    This has been a long cold winter and most of us are just now getting out to our yards to start working on our spring gardens.  Fortunately, Longwood knows how to plant and coax those little blooms so you can enjoy spring now.   Through May 19 you’ll view daffodils, lilacs, tulips, peonies, and dogwoods, just to name a few.

Trip Advisor recently ranked the world’s top gardens and two of the gardens listed are within 30 minutes of Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast.  Longwood Gardens was ranked number 2 and  the other garden listed in the top ten is Chanticleer Garden located in Wayne, Pa.  In fact, there are over a dozen gardens with a 45 minute drive from Hamanassett.  For a full list and directions, check out out gardens page on our website,  https://www.hamanassett.com/gardens.html for a list of 16 gardens.  And that isn’t counting all the gardens around Philadelphia!  You could spend at least a week just visiting gardens.

Longwood Gardens has also announced their summer concert series.  From Branford Marsalis Quartet at the Wine and Jazz  Festival on June 1, to Amy Grant, Lyle Lovett,  and Tony Bennett, there will be something for everyone.  Of course, there is also the spectacular fireworks and fountains shows throughout the summer.  For  Information on all the events at Longwood Gardens this summer http://www.longwoodgardens.com.
