The Apple Tree Inn, in Brockport, is opening a new gardening-themed gift shop, according to the Democrat & Chronicle (though one day later, I couldn't find the story online). This gives me a great excuse to visit one of my favorite lunch joints ever. I love especially to go in the fall, when there's a fire in the fireplace and everything is apples and winter squash. Also their quiche is amazing.
While you're in the neighborhood, check out Hurd Orchards and their high-end culinary items and dried flowers, arrangements, wreaths and especially swags. Holiday time there is fantastic. Also there are about a billion different kind of apples in the fall -- some don't even have names, just numbers. Experimental.
Don't miss Sara's Garden Center in Brockport. Our longtime friends the Keplers have great plants and Kathy has an incredible eye for container design.
