I visited the gardens of Conestoga House and Gardens, the estate of the late James Hale Steinman and Louise Tinsley Steinman, on June 14. Here are some photos from my visit:

There is much more to see than what my photos show.

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Very lovely garden, Carol. I can't believe I lived in south-east PA for 10 years and never heard tell of it. Thanks for posting.

There are several tables located on the grounds, and visitors are welcome to use them for picnics on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Users are asked to limit the use of tables to 30 minutes to maximize their availability to all who wish to use them.
