The Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden will be proceeding with this week’s Lilac Walks to share the history of the lilacs and the ways in which we care for them, though with fewer blossoms. While we try to anticipate the peak blooming period for our lilacs every year, we are ultimately at the mercy of Mother Nature. This year, our lilacs enjoyed a warm, wet spring and bloomed a little earlier than we guessed. This week’s heat has further impacted the delicate blooms, and the flowers are now past their prime.

The Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden will be open as planned this week, Wednesday-Sunday from 12 noon-4 pm, with house tours departing every half hour until 3:30 pm.
