Against the common belief that yards and gardens are colorless or dead during wintertime, those folks obviously haven’t been to see the winter blooms surrounding the historic Bacon Fraser house. If you have the opportunity to stop by and take a look, please do, you will not be disappointed.
The grounds surrounding the almost 200-year-old home harbor an abundance of heirloom flowers, bushes and trees. Some of the plants in the yard are as old as the house itself, making them just as historically valuable. But what exactly are heirloom plants, you may ask?
According to growerdirect.com, heirloom (or antique) flowers are plants that have been open-pollinated and have origins dating back as far as 50 years, or more. Some varieties are centuries old! These are the same flowers your great-great-grandparents would have grown in their gardens. The beauty of these flowers is that they can be enjoyed for generations.
We hope you enjoy some of the pics of our currently blooming camellias! Remember we are open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm and you are welcome to stop by for a tour of the beautiful grounds!
No matter if you are a flower lover or not, the abundance of beauty will leave you speechless. So, don’t hesitate to put on your walking shoes, stop by and #exploreliberty in our backyard!
