Gardens is a fairy-tale land which is full of fountains and beautiful
trees. These gardens are wonderful all year around, we've been there in
summer (first time in 1999) and winter and it's always exciting!
are situated in Pennsylvania, about 1.5 hours drive from our New Jersey
place. These gardens were created by industrialist Pierre du Pont and they
cover quite a big area. It has several fountains but we like the most one
on the shown picture. It works every half an hour and changes its shape
through a cycle, that's a very impressive view. All people gather on terrace
to make picture or videos of this show... The most lovely place is an animal
garden that consists of many trees cut in different animal's or bird's
shapes. It's the best place to take pictures and have fun. Of course,
there are a lot of flower gardens outdoor and indoors, and every flower
or tree has a sign with name and some short info. It's a paradise for people
who like flowers and understand different kinds of those.
has indoor conservatory that consists of several different climate areas
with various species. I like a desert display it always reminds me about
New Mexico... This conservatory has a huge hall with indoor fountains and
flowers that is open year around. The best appreciation of that display
one can get during winter when you enter the building and immediately immerse
in the summer world! I almost forgot about Bonsai display. The trees are
very cool and some of them are even from the previous century!
is very good, so it's a pleasure to walk in the park even in winter while
fountains shut off. In December the gardens are decorated according Christmas
tradition. The most exciting view appears after sunset; many trees and
bushes are shining with different colors in a quite wide area. One can
imagine to be in a magical forest...
