Do you find the Winterthur Garden hard to navigate? Unsure where the path may lead you? Is the newly emerging foliage obscuring your view of the Museum (the main referencing point when out “in the wild”)? Well fear no more! The white arrows have made their return and just in time to celebrate the glorious display of azaleas, primrose, lovely scented lilacs and a host of other spring flowering plants.
H. F. du Pont used simple, white directional arrows to help lead guests to the “must see spots” during Winterthur’s Spring Tour. Chris Strand, Winterthur’s Director of Garden and Estate thought that it would be a relatively easy thing to replicate, while giving an historical nod to Winterthur’s original form of way finding. The white arrow tour is now in its 5th year. The journey begins on the back patio of the Visitors Center, winds its way through the garden and ends at the back side of the Dorrance Gallery.
If you have never taken the tour, come give it a try and let us know what surprises you discovered along they way.
