After spending so much time at The Bellamy-Ferriday House and Gardens researching Lilac Girls, you can imagine how attached I’ve become to the lovely old house. I’ve also become so fond of the wonderful people at The Connecticut Landmarks, in whose hands Caroline left her beloved home. This year they have done a holiday tribute to Lilac Girls and decked the halls with lilac poinsettias and even put the book under the tree. I’m just so touched and this holiday I’ll be thanking my lucky stars I visited Caroline’s home back in 2000. Dressed in lilac, The Hay has never looked more beautiful.
Thank you to Dorothy Ambruso, BF House guide extraordinaire for sharing it.
