Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, Orchid Extravaganza until March 25h, Events, Flowers, Gardens, Day Tripping

Finally the sun has come out.  Buds are on the trees, weeping willows are getting greener.  Some signs and hints that Spring is around the corner.  Well, you know, we had a few nor’easters to take care of but, hopefully, we should almost be finished with winter.

My young second cousin, Natalia, stayed with me for some time after the devastation of two hurricanes in Puerto Rico.  Right before she lef Southern Delaware the weather in Southern Delaware was gray and miserable, so I took her to Longwood Gardens.  Their Orchid Extravaganza is going on and it is gorgeous.  If you get a chance, it is there until March 25th.  The address is 1001 Longwood Rd., Kennett Square, PAQ 19348.

When you think about it, it is very accessible, only a couple of hours away.  You can spend the day.  The area offers so much, plus a little bit of a change of scenery.

Flowers have a positive effect on humans.  I try to fill my vases with flowers as much as I can.  When I see them I have a different disposition altogether.  Longwood Gardens open year round.  Please check their website,

It is that time of the year, so if you are ready to get into the spirit of Easter, make a visit to these beautiful gardens.

Discover your own backyard.  Have a great day!

Sweet Christine’s, Gluten Free Confections, Bakery, All Natural, On-Line, Kennett Square, PA



I came across this company at the Dover Downs Casino and Hotel in Dover, DE.  I will tell you about that later.  I had not heard about this company.  First I asked if it was someone in the hotel making these gluten free brownies.  That’s all they had; the chocolate brownies.  They thought that it was the wife of an employee that had this business.  I still don’t know if that was true or not.

I bought one of the brownies and took some pictures.  Always thinking of a possible post for my website. 


I have mentioned before that for the past couple of years, everything cooked in my house is glute- free.  I guess I could say my husband was lucky to be diagnosed at this point in his life when so many people are being diagnosed and the food industry is exploding with gluten-free products; some better than others.

Sweet Christine’s is located at 132 West St., Kennett Square, PA, 19348.  Website is   Hours of operation are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Fridays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The thing is that once I got on Sweet Christine’s website I came to realize that this is not a small operation.  After being diagnosed years ago, and eating tasteless confections, she decided to make her own.  Word spread and the rest is history.  Sweet Christine’s sells to retailers, and wholesalers.  You can find her confections, in small shops, and in big time grocery stores. 

All baked goods are 100% homemade.  They are natural, gluten-free, wheat-free and nothing in them is artificial.  Sweet Christine’s makes cookies, muffins, breads, cakes, and the company ships all over the United States.  They can take orders for any of your celebrations; birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc.  For these special orders, please give them a call.

At the Delaware Beaches you can find these baked goods at Nourish, 373 Henlopen Junction, Rehoboth Beach, 302-227-6282 and at Good Earth Market, Rt. 26, a few miles west of Bethany Beach, 302-537-7100. 

I would suggest you visit because besides seeing all the products this company has to offer, there is also so much information for people that have been diagnosed with a gluten allergy.  Very informative and worth checking.

I have not visited Sweet Christine’s.  This post came about because of the brownie I bought.  After sampling the brownie, I wrote Sweet Christine’s an e-mail.  I thought the brownie was so good; dense and sweet.  I warmed it up before eating it. I mentioned that it would be so nice to have baked goods gluten free and sugar free.  20% of diabetics will be diagnosed with celiac disease.

 P.S.  I will visit Sweet Christine’s and you will be the first to know.  It is a bit of a drive from the Delaware Beaches, but I think it would be worth it.

Have a great day!!
