A Gate in the Winterthur Gardens by 


This garden gate is near the formal reflecting pond at Winterthur. Walkways meander through acres of naturalistic plantings designed by Mr. du Pont. On this autumn day, a soft misty rain has left everything a bit wet. ☺
Winterthur, an American country estate, is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont and his family. The home opened as a museum in 1951. It is located in Delaware, USA.

    You’ve used this beautiful archway perfectly to frame the entrance to the gorgeous gardens. They’ve maintained this so wonderfully – I feel as if I’ve stepped back 50 years and nothing has changed at all.

  • I’m so happy you’re a Winterthur fan because I took 313 photos on the drizzly November day when I was there! lol Thanks for your comment!! ☺♥
