Winterthur Gardens

Francisco and I visited Winterthur, a Du Pont Estate in Delaware, which has lovely gardens. It was a bit early (I think the azaleas are coming out next week), but the flowering trees and bushes were lovely, as were some early flowers.

There are a dozen kind of daffodils (narcissus?).

Lilacs are my favorite.

Can you believe. All that time I worked down the street from there, and I never really explored it.

Those bottle-brush like flowers, by the way, are "Fothergilla" -- I just found this out, so please excuse me for showing off.

I saw your picture of those flowers on facebook the other day, and now I have been seeing them everywhere! (I never noticed them before.)
