The final visit of the day was to Ivy Acres Nursery, the largest grower of impatiens on the east coast as well as a major grower of geraniums and poinsettias. Jack and Alice Van de Wettering opened up their private garden to us and we wandered around enjoying the scenery with drinks in hand. I was struck by a couple of ladies in the garden.quite the poses wouldn't you say! We then walked down the road to the nursery where they had transformed it to tables, chairs, music and food. Lots of food! A wonderful day and evening was had by all!
