When my kids and I visited the Hershey Garden last month to meet a fellow blogger, we saw lots of watering cans all over the place that was painted so uniquely and so beautifully. I’ve never seen so many watering cans before and they are all so pretty! It was so artistic, the way they painted them, and how they put them together. I bet the kids had so much fun painting their watering cans. When you enter Hershey’s Garden, you will be greeted with this sign above(full picture below).Isnt it so pretty? There was a Giant watering can, too bad I was not able to photograph it, hence I was busy talking to mommy Mel, my co-blogger, catching up with the latest of here and there, since we dont have much time and it was getting dark.
Anyhow, here are some of the photos I took of the Art Exhibit by Milton Hershey School Students. It was taken by my Canon T3 using 50mm 1.4f lens.
Last month, my kids and I visited the Hershey’s Gardens once again. We went there to meet a fellow blogger who I met online, she and her family were in town that day, so we decided to meet in the Garden, which is a perfect place to meet because its not as crowded as the Park and not as noisy as the Factory. And of course, my kids and I want to see the Rose Garden and the Butterfly Garden as well, I thought it would be the perfect time to see this two gardens.
We got there a little bit early, so we got the chanced to walk around the garden and did some photo shoot with the kids. The Rose Garden was so beautiful and enchanting! I felt like Alice in Wonderland when I step into this garden. The roses are so beautiful and they are all in full bloom! Oh how I wish I have a garden like this! The view is just so breath taking. The fragrance of the roses envelops the place, it was like your in a magical kingdom. I felt lucky that we live 40mins away from Hershey, so coming here ever year is not difficult.
Here are some photos to share from this Garden. This is only one part of Hershey’s Gardens, you can check out this link for the Butterfly Gardens, or you can check out this Link for more post of our Travels in Hershey’s PA.

Here is a beautiful Rose for you.
And here is Mommy Mel Cole and her cutie Baby Vince.
The weather here in the East Coast is so unpredictable specially here in our location, its the reason why houses here are built differently compare to the houses in tropical places. And it doesnt last very long, you need to update it after 10 years and so. It also affects the vehicles here. The cars wont last very long because of the bad weather in the winter, so theres a lot of junk cars here. People buy cars like every 5 years, they throw their old car to the junk shop, or sell it to a very cheap price. If I were them, I would donate it to www.carangel.com, so other people can benefit it, specially those who dont have much, rather than it will just be sitting in the old garage and rot, or taking it to Junk shops.
When we visit Longwood Gardens a couple of months ago with my family, I noticed some cool decorations everywhere in the gardens, outdoor and indoor. I saw some people installing it, burying the tips on the ground, and ran some wires to connect it. I was wondering what are this stuff, I have no clue, but it sure look like glass balls. I was wondering maybe they have a show or something, so I checked on their brochure, and found out that this things lights up at night. It must be so beautiful to see this lights. I’ve read that Longwood Gardens have a Light show on certain dates indicated in their website which runs until the end of September. Thinking about this special event makes me want to go and see it.
Longwood gardens is one of my families favorite place to visit every year. Its so beautiful, so huge, and they showcase different flowers every season. Now that they have this lights installed everywhere, this would surely attract more tourist from around US. By the way, this lights are installed by Bruce Munro, you can check out the internet for more of his work. Below are some of my shots of the glass bubbles.
Photo above in W&B, I wish I took this in a normal shot, so you can see its raw color.
Below photo is what it looks like at night. Grabbed the photo from Longwood Gardens Website
This is really beautiful. It looks like rain drops. I wonder how it looks like at night?
And below is my precious, sitting on one of the benches outside the entrance of Longwood Gardens. Imagine, if you visit this place at night, you will be welcomed with beautiful Lights.
Below is the video when they were installing all this lights. Check it out, its so beautiful. =)
Wherever we go for a long trip, we always carry the laptop with us, to keep our kids entertained while riding for hours and hours. My car dont have a car entertainment so we just bring the laptop, and play the kids favorite movies so they will not get bored during the trip. I was planning to get a car entertainment, but hubby said that we really dont need it, the laptop is much better cause we can also browse the internet, and play games online, while he drives. I agree with him, what he said is true and more practical. But we sure need a speaker like one of those altec lansing speakers to connect to the laptop, so we can hear the sound clearly from the laptop. The speaker of the laptop is not enough to understand the movie. I havent bought one yet, maybe I will check the thesource.ca for affordable speakers that we can hook to our laptop.
