DC Area Flower Safari

If you are in the DC area, I hope you will join me and other flower lovers at our DC Flower Safari Meetups. The next Meetup is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th at Winterthur in Wilmington, DE.

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.

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.

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.
