|Redbuds and azaleas bloom up a winding hill to an outlook at Winterthur Gardens.|
We visited Winterthur (pronounced Winter-tour) in May for the first time. It is a beautiful garden for spring as its founder, H.F. du Pont used a garden journal to plant his succession of blooms that starts in early spring. After walking past the beautiful Quarry Garden with its hundreds of giant primroses, I found this hillside covered in our native redbud trees (Ceris canadensis L.) and matching pink azaleas (Rhododendron).
|You can just see the path from the bridge over the Quarry Garden on the right.|
|You can just glimpse your resting spot at the top of the hill...|
|Sycamore tree on Sycamore Hill with a small summer house from which to enjoy this outlook of the rolling hills.|
|Something makes me think that Elizabeth Bennett or Elinor Dashwood would have loved rambling around such a place. :)|

|Amazing how the color of the redbud and azalea flowers flow into one another.|
Hope you enjoyed a taste of spring in summer!
Be sure to see Winterthur's Quarry Garden also, for a fresh start to your day. ;)
