Hardy Orange

If you happen to be wandering the grounds near the cemeteries and catch a sweet scent on the breeze, don’t look for a blossom as the source, it’s these lovely citrus trees! These Hardy Oranges (trifoliate to some) are the only citrus tree that will grow this far north, and smell as sweet as any flower when they ripen.

Also pictured are a pair of handwoven baskets made right here on the Plantation out of wisteria vine.
