Item Information

Title:
A walled garden
Description:
The Bayard Thayer estate in Lancaster was well-known for its beautiful gardens. Shown here is the one-acre, English walled garden, which was started in 1908. Spring flowers were confined to this space. Each year, no less than 75,000 bulbs would be planted, including narcissi, daffodils, lilies, and (as shown here) tulips, truly creating a display that was "gorgeous in the extreme."
