Greetings from the Brandywine Valley

Because of George H.W. Bush's funeral and national day of mourning, Paul had Wednesday off, and rather than waste a free Wednesday, we got in the car early in the morning and drove to the Brandywine Valley, where we went to Winterthur to see the Yuletide decorations in the mansion and the follies on display on the grounds, then to Longwood Gardens to see the winter train display, fountain decorations, and conservatory flowers and decorated trees.

We started seeing flurries as we drove through Delaware and by the time we reached Winterthur, it was really snowing, though nothing stuck on the roads; the paths were a bit slippery and the wooden walkways at Longwood were even more so though the snow had stopped falling by the time we got there. We had lunch at Winterthur's excellent salad bar and dinner in the cafe at Longwood, which was not mobbed as it usually is on weekends! More photos soon:
