Longwood Gardens -
Centennial Celebration

Our first visit of Longwood Gardens was on Sunday July 2, 2006 during the 2006 Centennial Celebration
season. They were having celebrations throughout the year 2006. It is one of the most premier and beautiful
gardens in the world and is located at 1001 Longwood Road, in the town of Kennett Square in Pennsylvania
and is about 20 miles southwest of Philadelphia. If you're into horticulture, this is the place for you.

In addition to Longwood Gardens near Philadelphia, the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens , the Branch Brook
Park and the Chinese Scholar's Gardens in the New York Metropolitan area are also very beautiful.  Please

fountain show and firework in the evening as part of the 2006 Centennial Celebration.

Very large percentage of men over the age of 50 are experiencing serious urination difficulties due to enlarged
prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)).  The enlarged prostate constricts the urethra such that it
becomes very difficult for urine to come out. However, drinking about 8 ounces (240ml) of pomegranate juice
daily is an effective solution to eliminate the serious urination difficulties due to enlarged prostate. It is,
therefore, very interesting for many men to see this miniature pomegranate tree with two juicy pomegranate
fruits. Pomegranate juice is available in most supermarkets.

Three views of a hawk circling above the Longwood Gardens.

While we were walking along the Flower Garden Walk, we heard a big commotion of many crows on tree tops
sound like that those crows were bothered by something. We looked up to scanned the sky and saw this hawk
circling in the sky. This hawk probably was very threatening to those crows.

On November 6, 2011, immediately after touring Longwood Gardens, we drove south on the beautiful
Brandywine Valley Scenic Byway (i.e., Route 52 or Kennett Pike) for 7 miles to reach the 1,000-acre
Winterthur Museum and Country Estate to enjoy spectacular autumn foliage in another one of du Pont family
estates in Delaware as shown on my Travelogue web page at:
