Almost every Wednesday, I walk throughout downtown Edenton, North Carolina, to deliver newspapers. There’s something satisfying about walking throughout town and dropping off copies of the weekly Chowan Herald.
Across the street from the newspaper’s office, is the Cupola House, a historic structure that includes two beautiful gardens. The biggest one is the The Frances Drane Inglis Garden garden. Inglis is a committed volunteer. She organized a group called the Wednesday Weeders. The volunteers come out every Wednesday to maintain the gardens.
The smaller garden is an herb and fruit tree garden. You can see dill, basil and tarragon along with pomegranate trees. If you’re lucky, you may even see some wildlife. As a tribute to this group, I’ve collected some of the photos I’ve taken of the Cupola House gardens from this growing season.
