Yuletide at Winterthur 
 
Yuletide at Winterthur is one of the very special exhibits that Dolores and I like to visit during the holidays.   Winterthur is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont.  The house, museum and grounds are beautiful and this is a great travel destination. The location is Wilmington, Delaware.  
Many try to see Winterthur and the nearby Longwood Gardens on the same visit.  It would really be a full day to combine both destinations.  I recommend a day for each.  By the way, this is mushroom country so be sure to try the mushroom soup at either location for a special lunchtime treat.

Yuletide at Winterthur Peony Tree
Most of the Christmas trees are now down and gone and we must rely on our photographs for the fond memories of the holiday season. 
I photograph flowers all of the time so I take notice of unusual settings of flowers.  The peony tree at Winterthur was one of the most unusual trees that we observed during our visit to Winterthur.
Always have your camera nearby to take advantage of the special moments when you are out and about.  Please share photographs from your favorite places in the comments for this post.
