After a busy holiday season, relaxation and preparation for the new year is one of our favorite things in coastal Liberty County. The cooler temperatures require a hoodie or light jacket for outdoor activities, but the view is worth the extra layer!
While most people might find spring the best time of year for flowers in bloom, our winter flowers are some of our favorites. Gardens and yards are brought to life with camellias in shades of red, pink and white during our more brisk months.
A great showcase of these beauties is located in the heart of downtown Hinesville and also happens to be the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau offices. Located at the Bacon-Fraser house, a historic home built in 1839, you will find a ton of different varieties of these amazing flowers!
The property is full of heirloom flowers, oak trees dripping in Spanish moss and a sycamore tree covered in Confederate jasmine vines! To say we’re lucky to work in such a beautiful place is definitely an understatement.
Camellias and other winter flowers are blooming throughout all of Liberty County. This makes going on a walk in the winter one of our favorite things to do! Since the weather has prompted our local gardens to bloom, we decided to share the beauty.
Want to see these beauties in person? You’re welcome to stop by and have a tour of our grounds! We are open Monday-Friday from 8:30am until 5pm.
We also suggest that you keep an eye out while you #ExploreLiberty, because they’re everywhere. Remember, it’s good to stop and smell the roses every once in a while, or in this case the camellias!
