"First Annual Wildflower Celebration" Mount Cuba by Rhondaj

They had no idea....

The Mt. Cuba Center opened its doors for the first time hosting a Wildflower Celebration. Hours were from 11am-4pm. Free admission. We got there shortly after 11 am; already the traffic was jammed and we were parking in the overflow parking lots. The turnout was unbelievable. Instead of 100s of visitors, it was more like a thousand. The guides kept their cool, but you could tell they were overwhelmed. The hourly tour through the estate turned into a wander-as-you-will walk. Wonder how they will change things for next year?

Dedicated to the study of Piedmont flora

This is the former estate of Mr. and Mrs. Lammot du Pont Copeland. When she died a few years ago, the Mrs. left this place as a non-profit organization committed to promoting an appreciation for plants native to the piedmont. The estate is rather modest, considering it sits on 630 acres. The estate (built 1935-1937) is used as a conference/education center.
