winterthur museum and gardens - part 2

we really enjoyed touring winterhur in delaware on sunday.  after we toured the inside of the mansion/museum, we walked around the property.  winterthur is set in a 1,000-acre preserve of picturesque rolling meadows and wooded areas.  near the home is a 60-acre naturalistic garden that looks like something right out of a fairy tale story.

walking through the gardens was like walking through a movie set.  everything was so pretty.  we were especially tickled by the fairy garden which had a thatched-roof fairy home, a witch's house, tiny little bridges, and a giant bird nest.  the details were incredible, it was nuts!

love, laurie

What a fairy garden. Can't image how much fun his daughter had playing in the houses and around the play area.
