Episode III: We booze it up in an historic greenhouse



There are no recipes this time. Amy and I drank our Esprit de June straight. But we do recommend a look at this post and this site and these pictures to learn more about the wonderful Sonnenberg Gardens. Here's the live experience:


More to come! Look for future episodes of our adventures during Amy's Central NY speaking tour. And a cocktail hour with fellow bloggers Kathy/Cold Climate Gardening, Dee/Red Dirt Ramblings, and Leslie/Growing a Garden in Davis.

  1. You guys should really post these cocktail hours at 5 at night or something. Here I am at 11:22 a.m. wanting a little nip of something to make my landscape designing go more elegantly!

    Thanks for the tip about DRY soda in a previous episode, by the way. Very cool stuff. My partner said the Rhubarb tasted of fresh-squeezed cow pasture, but the Lavender seems to have been a hit all the way around.

  2. Well Amy at least with the time change issues, you can justify the after breakfast cocktail as and after lunch cocktail in Pacific time. There are often hidden benefits to travel.
