SOLSC Day 10
We’ve gone through half of the conservatory so now lets do the second half and finish up in here. Let’s start with a look at a few more plants and flowers.
As we made out way through hallways we stopped at one point to see the bonsai exhibition.
And one more.
These were all behind glass hence the glare and ghost images. You can’t read the information in front of them , but some of them are quite old.
Of course, to get from one exhibit to the next you had to walk through connecting hallways. Now, this being Longwoood Gardens, you can’t have plain empty walkways.
Here are a few more pictures of what we saw.
On our way back to the entrance we passed the children’s garden. We didn’t go in, but there were lots of children in there enjoying the sights and the interactive displays.
By now it was after 1:00 so the ladies were getting hungry. Of course I wasn’t. As many of you know eating out is not really my thing. Anyway, Erika took us to the cafeteria so we could have some lunch.
Kennett Square is known as the Mushroom Capital of the World. It produces over a million pounds of mushrooms a week. Because of this there had to be mushroom soup on the menu and of course I had to have some. Erika asked one of the workers how much soup they made each day. The answer – vats. Lunch for me was a cup of mushroom (which was delicious) half of a turkey sandwich, and a strawberry panna cotta for desert.
After lunch we were ready to head out to see what other treasures Longwood Gardens held. So, tomorrow we will explore the grounds.
