Many of the gardens at Longwood are purposeful in their design and feature colorful plants that are always in bloom. Not so with the meadow garden. It felt very natural and peaceful and like I was walking through a field (I was). I recognized native plants for pollinators, walked on trails mown through the grass, and stepped on animal droppings. There was still a lot to see and great little touches of well-integrated design here and there.
You can read more about the Meadow Garden here. I'll let my pictures do the rest of the talking.
