Even on a drizzling fall day in late November Winterthur is beautiful. Autumn leaves float in the pool which reflects the house and shrubbery.
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 known for its naturalistic style gardens and is located in Delaware, USA.
