Friday Video: Early Spring at Wintherthur

Friday, May 8, 2015

Isabella reporting,

Here on the blog, I've shared many of the treasures of Winterthur Museum, from embroidered silk mantles to a gilded tureen, unforgettable portraits to a porcelain bourdaloue. But in addition to being a world-class museum founded by American collector Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur is also home to world-class grounds, sixty acres of naturalistic gardens and woodlands that were another passion of Mr. du Pont. Regardless of the season, the gardens are an endless joy to visit.

For those of you who live too far from Delaware for a visit, here's a short video featuring the early spring gardens - two minutes of beauty and serenity to begin your day.

Beautiful! I feel so fortunate to live within an easy distance of Winterthur (though I haven't been yet this year) and Longwood; the duPonts of the early 20thc left the public a wonderful legacy in their estates.
