Pumpkins, Spooks, and Gardens in the Brandywine Valley

When Glenn and I moved to the Brandywine Valley almost 20 years ago I told him the problem wasn’t going to be finding something to do, it was going to be deciding what to do out of all the possibilities.  That is just as true today. To help you decide I’ve listed a few more events happening in October and November in the Brandywine Valley.  Be sure to bookmark my blog because I update it frequently as I learn about new events.

The Brandywine River Museum always has new and exciting exhibits in addition to showing the art work of N. C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, and Jamie Wyeth.  Through November 11, 2014 you can see the exhibit entitled Exalted Nature by Charles Burchfield.  You can enjoy arts and crafts by regional artists through November 9 on weekends and music on the Brandywine on Thursday evening.  The Brandywine River Museum is less than 6 miles from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast.
