I am taking a lovely tour today of the Brandywine Valley and should have some amazing posts for you in the coming days. One of my highlights will be Longwood Gardens Christmas which I have visited but many years ago. I am so excited to be able to show you this amazing place, and I am sure you will be in awe of the beauty. Be sure to follow me on twitter as I will be tweeting some shots today as well.

The Brandywine Valley is so beautiful, though I have never been to Longwood Gardens. It has been on my to do list for a while now! Will you make it to Winterthur? That is one of my favorite places to visit. Enjoy!!
