Berkshire Botanical’s Fête des Fleurs avec Voitures
Fleurs, voitures, despite the facile rhyme, flowers and cars generally don’t turn up in the same place at the same time. But on Saturday, August 14, at the Berkshire Botanical Garden’s summer party at the Pittsfield home of Ann and Dale Fowler, the hosts’ renowned collection of classic and vintage cars, and car-related memorabilia garnered nearly as many oohs and aaahs from the guests as did the equally exotic array of rare plants that were presented by uber plantsmen Bob Hyland of Loomis Creek Farm in Hudson and guest auctioneer Renny Reynolds of Hortulus Farm Nursery in Wrightstown, PA.
Lou Boxer, Beau Buffier, Jenny Buffier, Mike Beck, Lanie Grant, Joanne Cassullo, Matt Larkin, and the organizer of the plant auction Bob Hyland
