An Annual Lunch at Patsy Pollack's Country Cottage

Spring is the perfect time of year for outdoor lunches.

This past weekend, after our annual visit to the Trade Secrets rare plant and garden antiques sale in Sharon, Connecticut, we drove to a tranquil town in New York State, where we enjoyed a lovely lunch at the weekend home of our senior EVP of Merchandising, Patsy Pollack.

It has become a tradition to go to Patsy’s after Trade Secrets - in fact, we all look forward to the day’s events every year. Trade Secrets is such a fun affair, and it draws great gardeners, and other horticultural experts who bring the most amazing and unusual varieties of plants, objects, and accessories for the garden and home. Plus, the funds from Trade Secrets aid the Women’s Support Services in that area, which offers free and confidential services to victims of domestic violence.

And afterwards, Patsy served a delicious buffet. We all enjoyed a delightful luncheon and walk through her pristine country gardens. Enjoy these photos.
