Plant ID Tags
The grounds at Pebble Hill are covered with beautiful shrubs and magnificent trees, many planted in the early twentieth century. Guests constantly inquire about these plantings. Other patrons are looking for definitive type and color information when the camellias and azaleas are in blossom. Members of Thomasville’s Briarcliff Garden Club have been gathering information in the plantation’s gardens for well over a year to provide answers. Pebble Hill docents Taylor Littlefield and Hazel Courtney (also a Briarcliff member) have just finished placing identification markers by trees and shrubs around the Main House. Are you interested in horticulture or thinking about upgrading your landscape? To see and learn more, check out the new markers in Pebble Hill’s gardens.
Painting Receives Facelift
If you have visited the Elisabeth Ireland Poe Gallery in the last month, you will have noticed a good friend missing from the wall of the Main Gallery. John Emms’ wonderful painting of hounds and puppies has been out for a bit of restoration. Yost Conservation, one of the nation’s finest firms, has been repairing a small spot of damage and refurbishing the painting. The handsome painting should be back home for all to enjoy in less than 2 months. The masterful maintenance will have the painting ready to endure another fifty years.
