We were up in Buck County, Pennsylvania this weekend and spent the night in Philly. When I did my research to see which used bookstores I might want to frequent I came across Baldwin’s Book Barn not too far out of Philadelphia in West Chester. It turned out to be a good call. The place is really charming and has a huge inventory. While I didn’t find anything that made me squeal I did leave with 21 books.
On the way to the Book Barn, John realized we were in the general vicinity of Longwood Gardens. He has been there before and loved it, so after adjusting my typical, I didn’t plan it so I don’t want to go attitude, I was really glad we went. Through John I have become a big fan of gardens, and not just as places to read. After a lunch in the cafe we had a lovely wander (and I got a chance to hear the pipe organ). We didn’t take many/any pictures of many flowers but he meadow was sure enticing.
