An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog are the combined efforts of the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
We typically schedule two bus trips to unique destinations each year. This past fall, The Traveling Herb Seminar to the Bronx Beauties, took us first to the New York Botanical Garden. This 250 acre garden features over 50 diverse gardens including the rose garden, perennial garden, and children's adventure garden.
The herb garden photographed here has the gorgeous conservatory as its backdrop.
The Victorian conservatory was built in 1902 and features 11 gardens including the rainforest, orchid, and cactus gardens.
After our intrepid travelers meandered through the grounds of the New York Botanic Garden, they stopped by the pavillion to gather their basket lunch prepared by Sweet Remembrances. The menu featured French Style Cheese Spread and Crackers, a Marinated Beef and Sun Dried Tomato Salad, Parmesan Tortellini Salad, Flavortop Muffins and Chocolate Zucchini Cake.
