PerenniallyCrazy writes: Wow! Thank you Michelle. You've really outdone yourself with these photos of Winterthur. So many beautiful photos worthy of being painted or framed and hang to enjoy in one's home. Makes me wish I could be there. Posted: 10:59 pm on May 2nd
cwheat000 writes: Amazing quince! Northofthe49th- snow? I feel for you. At this point, I am truly done with winter. Posted: 11:26 pm on April 30th
ancientgardener writes: Such beautiful flowering trees. How wonderful it would be to live nearby and be able to stroll there at one's leisure. That long curving bench was so perfect in its setting Posted: 11:12 pm on April 30th
darylsavage writes: Thanks Lynn, I have never seen ones so large; I wonder if they are quite old.

bee1nine writes: Michelle, Thank you for sharing ALL this spring splender on
your visit to Winterthur!
Have pictured myself there, strolling about, among nature's
bountiful beauty and no doubt listening to some cheery birds
in the background! Perhaps someday, I'll have the great
pleasure to visit in person!! :)

northofthe49th writes: Beautiful! Oh how these pictures fill me with longing! Right now our corner of the world is blanketed with another 6" of snow, and there's more on the way... Posted: 2:48 pm on April 30th
LFeliciGallant writes: Hello DarylSavage, You are spot on. The shrub is a quince, however, most weren't labeled so we can't tell you the cultivar. Lynn Posted: 2:10 pm on April 30th
wittyone writes: Is that first one a Japanese Maple as vojt suggested? The color looks right but the curly, wavy branches made me think initially of Harry Lauder's Walking Stick but I don't know what the foliage looks like when it first leafs out.

What ever it is, it's gorgeous! I want and, of course, NEED one of those. Posted: 1:48 pm on April 30th
GardenersWK writes: Lovely pictures! My favorites will be the first one and the last one!

No GPOD email yet today, and yesterday's arrived late in the PM. But my log-in held from yesterday. :-)

< --- One of my two dawn redwoods. After 10 years it's about 20' tall now, grew about 1' per year... still fenced to keep the deer from munching the lower branches.

Fantastic muted spring hues, I wish I knew the names of all those gorgeous trees, I wonder if they have them labeled.

My favorite photo is the 2nd one down on the left, great composition with the road and sky. I like the bench in the top right photo. Thank you, Michelle.

Are those large coral-colored shrubs quince?

MichelleGervais writes: Good morning, everyone! An update on the missing emails--it seems the website has been crashing in the early morning hours just about when the eletter normally goes out. We're sending them out manually each morning until someone figures out what's wrong. Unfortunately for us east coasters, it usually doesn't go out until after 9am! I'll keep everyone posted. I know it's frustrating! Posted: 8:36 am on April 30th
hortiphila writes: Michelle, Simply Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. We should all consider the creative practical approaches Winterthur has utilized, to match the landscape gardening challenges of today, especially if you own a large property. This has fueled my need to visit sometime soon. Posted: 8:23 am on April 30th

meander1 writes: There really is an air of timeless graciousness about these photos from Winterthur. Women strolling about in elegant dresses carrying parasols would look right at home. I guess it's the beautiful sweeping swaths of lawn that contribute to this feeling of yesteryear (plus no people in Tshirts and shorts to rein in my imagination).
And, Oh, my goodness, that truly is the most stunning of laceleaf Japanese maples...I'm sure it has been the star of many garden magazine covers and articles (including Fine Gardening?) Posted: 6:26 am on April 30th
