The Orchard and Gardens PDF Print E-mail
Apple and pear trees still stand and produce fine fruit every year.  The Fuersts were wonderful gardeners whose handiwork can still be seen from earliest spring through the fall: the wildflowers they cultivated, the many tulip, daffodil and iris bulbs they planted, the large lilac bushes and the raspberry patch growing in the orchard near a small grove of black walnut trees.  The fragrant bush and climbing roses the Fuersts favored are gone, but those too may be restored soon.
