A Story in pictures – Part-1 (Longwood Gardens)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Suni, Adi and I went to Longwood gardens in PA. It reminded me so much of the Kew gardens in London, so similar and beautiful!
As you can see, the flowers were amazing and we hadnt even entered the garden.
These were just outside the main entrance!

And then…
