Plan at this point for May 11 is to head to Winterthur in Wilmington, DE. Winterthur has gardens and a museum. Like Longwood Gardens – it’s an old duPont estate.
INformation about Winterthur is at http://www.winterthur.org/
Looks to be about a 2 hour drive from Bethesda to Winterthur. Let’s plan on carpooling from Grosvenor Metro Station. We’ll leave the Metro station at 7:30.
Admission to Winterthur is $ 18, which includes a tour of the mansion. For $ 30 you can reserve a place on a tour of the mansion at a specific time. If you belong to a botanical garden that participates in the American Horticultural Societies Recipricol Admission programs – your membership will get you into Winterthur for free.
