Scilla blooming at Jewett House

Small violet-colored scilla flowers blanket the garden and lawns of the Sarah Orne Jewett House and the nearby Hamilton House for a few weeks in early spring. A stroll through the tiny blooms is the perfect antidote to cabin fever.

The grounds of the Jewett and Hamilton Houses in South Berwick, Maine, are open dawn to dusk, year round, for your enjoyment.
