MARCH BANK WINTERTHUR by PHOTOPHANATIC1
It is still a little too early for many spring bulbs to be blooming in TheGardenLady’s garden. In a few more days, flowers will seriously start showing off. The buds on my daffodils are ready to open- one already did.Â I can see some hyacinths forcing their flowers out of the leaf bases. One gets a little impatient waiting.
If you enjoy seeing masses of spring bulbs in bloom outdoors, there are wonderful gardens that one can visit.
Winterthur in Deleware is a wonderful place to see early spring bulbs in bloom. This is the week is when their March Bank is especially lovely. What they refer to as the March Bank is the oldest surviving garden area at Winterthur. H.F. DuPont, the owner of the estate, began naturalizing daffodils on this rolling hill in the early 1900s and “by the 1940s had planted thousands of snowdrops, snowflakes, crocus, squills, and glory-of-the-snow.”
