IN BLOOM



The 100 “Mrs. John T. Scheepers” bright yellow tulips planted by the Jamestown Historical Society in the cemetery west of the museum are in bloom just in time to replace the daffodils on the other side of the wall. The tulip, developed by Jamestown summer resident John Scheepers, was named for his wife, Rose. The Scheepers lived at The Crickets on Fox Hill Farm. Harry T. Burn, to whom Mrs. Scheepers was Aunt Rose, donated the bulbs.
