In other news…. DAFFODIL PLANTING AT WEYMOUTH An enthusiastic group of volunteer Dirt Gardeners, Master Gardeners, and local garden club members gathered recently on the first clear day after the recent rainy season to plant 670 daffodil bulbs on the grounds of the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities. Local garden clubs contributed to the purchase of Carltons, Ice Follies and King Alfred bulbs, all of which do well in our southern climate. The bulbs were planted flanking the long view to the meadow area. Everyone is invited to visit Weymouth in the spring to enjoy these daffodils in bloom.
A Continuing Story in North Carolina.
The story of Weymouth began in the early 1900s when James Boyd, Sr. of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, purchased over 1200 acres at the request of his daughter Helen Boyd Dull to save the longleaf pine forest from the destruction of the turpentine industry.
The Georgian mansion that we know today was built in 1922 by his grandson, author James Boyd and his wife Katharine. Here they hosted literary greats, founded the Moore County Hounds, and influenced the design of a community.
Today the story continues with a writers residency, literary programming, musical concerts, and a dedication to conserving the gardens and longleaf pine forests.
