We are now visiting the Peirce-du-Pont House at Longwood Gardens. Here is some history from their website:
Joshua Peirce, a Quaker farmer, built the section of the brick house with the covered porch in 1730 (the porch dates from 1824). Successive generations of the Peirce family enlarged the modest farmhouse during the nearly two centuries it remained in their possession.
I really loved the kitchen

A lovely photo of Mr du Pont in the library
Half a million lights decorate the outside of Longwood Gardens which are 1077 acres
It was a foggy night due to being rather warm for December but I did get some cool shots for your to enjoy
A gorgeous Bird of Paradise
I hope you enjoyed this tour of Longwood Gardens. The Brandywine Valley is a great place for a weekend getaway as many fabulous museums, shops and restaurants abound. It is always nice to check out new areas and see what they have to offer.
