Spring at Longwood Gardens

Went to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square yesterday to get my weekly dose of plants.  Photographs of grapefruit, begonia, forsythia, and daffodils are below, but if you want to see the whole set, visit here. The trip, however, was a huge disappointment because the Darwin star orchid (Angraecum sesquipedale) had been freshly eaten by a cockroach. If I worked at Longwood Gardens, I’d release chameleons. That would fix the problem and would delight the visitors. Plus I could say, “Release the chameleons,” over the PA system with a Mr Burns voice.
