Blooms and Roses Hort Coach Tour

On Saturday June 22, 2012, we are off and rollin’ down the road, in our Deluxe Motor Coach. First we will visit Palatine Fruit & Roses. They are a grower of roses with lots to teach us and even more to show us. Eva and her husband will see that we have an instructive commentary on Roses and the chance to purchase some of the beautiful specimens that they grow.
Lunch is buffet style at the Best Western Beacon Inn. While we dine the glassed room we can view the marina and Lake Ontario. Our buffet will include a variety of salads, vegetables, Penne pasta, Roasted Chicken followed by an assortment of desserts and coffee or tea.
A Private garden is the next stop of the day. Wayne Rubel’s garden has been featured in more than one magazine and you will see why. A carpenter by trade, his arbors, ponds and plantings are sure to amaze. Better bring a camera!
Then we make our way to Magnotta Winery for a little sampling and tasting. Fruit of vine as they say. An award winning winery with lots of choose in their wines for sale.
When we arrive at our last stop you will be glad that we brought the big bus. There is lots of room for purchases in the luggage compartment! We are going to Northland Nurseries in Clapison Corners. Everything in the place is $5.99 for a 1 gal pot! I have never seen such a variety of plants, with colours available that are very hard to find. Make your wish list and bring it along. This is the stop that it is hard to get everyone to leave. From here we will make our way for home. We will have new ideas and new friends!!
