The teeniest pumpkin

One the more magical places to visit at any time of the year is the garden at Winterthur in Wilmington, Delaware. I thought I’d share a few pictures of a new attraction in the Enchanted Garden.

This may look to the casual observer like a stripped tree trunk, perhaps a piece of garden sculpture, but step a little closer and you’ll find magic in the nooks and crannies. Open one door, and you’ll see yourself staring back.

Or peer in a window to see a cozy fairy den, all laid out for some tea on a chilly autumn afternoon. The little striped pumpkin is the perfect finishing touch, don’t you think?

    I love outdoor spaces like that – especially at this time of the year when it’s cold and wet and we’re all more likely to take the easy choice and stay inside.

    Truly a gift to find outdoor places like this to explore and experience the seasons. Now all I need to do is get Delaware’s people to talk to California’s people, and maybe we can get a replication going on over here in the Bay Area!

    I love Winterthur, especially during Christmas. My family and I normally make the trip every year, in addition to Longwood Gardens. Thankfully northern Delaware and the Philadelphia area offer a wide range of holiday options for families…

    Also, don’t forget the Brandywine River Museum, which can also be a lot of fun for kids too.
