Lunch with Patsy Pollack

Spring is a wonderful time to get together with friends.

Last weekend, after our morning at 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 former colleague, 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 horticultural experts who bring unique 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.

At Patsy's cottage, she served a delicious buffet of Greek-themed dishes. Despite a day of rain, we all enjoyed a delightful luncheon and walk through her pristine country gardens. Enjoy these photos.
