Stitch Markers meet the Frances Land House

Meeting the at least 250 year old Sycamore. This beautiful tree was around long before the house was built between 1805 and 1810.

7/25 STSM in front of Sycamore

A few steps to the right a glimsp of the house itself. A little history: the porch and portico were added in 1955 when the house was purchased and used for "Rose Hall" an exclusive dress/bridal shop.

7/25 STSM front of home

After a tour of the house (no photo's allowed, it's a museum) a short break on one of the many benches on the grounds. The door leads into the dining room. The kitchen, as in many plantations, would have been outside.

7/25 STSM one the bench

This is new to me....


Not sure what is planted to grow. The Master Gardners of Va Beach take care of the plantings/gardens for the House and didn't leave info. Perhaps grape vines?

After this picture the camera battery died. But Markers will have the opportunity to see more of the FLH soon!

Tonight....puppy training!
