Wow! What a great start to our tour! We started out visiting Buddy Lee’s Transcend Nursery in Independence, Louisiana. His expansion area was once an old nursery site, and there’s still some lingering evidence, like these old cans.
Then Buddy, along with his friends and family, treated everyone to an awesome lunch complete with shrimp, catfish, brisket, and alligator nuggets! There was even Zydeco band, so of course there was dancing!
Our next stop was to Jenkins Farm and Nursery and Amite, where Ms. Margie held court.
She shared her knowledge and her fantastic collection of unusual plants.
Then we headed up the road to visit the spectacular Bracy’s Nursery.
There we learned a lot about nursery production and propagation. Randy and Regina Bracy were wonderful hosts, wining and dining us at their home!
Now to get some rest before we hit the road bright and early in the morning!
