May 2018 - Shop Hop Bus Trip
Our trip started by meeting the Badger Bus at Christ Church United Methodist parking lot at 8:00 A.M. to board the bus for our Shop Hop! There were treats and water from our hostesses.
We traveled first to Yerkes Frog Alley Greenhouses, which is a centennial farm near Mukwonago. It is home to 1000 varieties of Annual Flowers and traditional Spring Bedding Plants. As we boarded, our bus driver informed us that we had almost filled the storage area with plants and would need to put any future plants in the bus for the trip home.
From there we traveled to Maxim’s Old Train Depot in Oconomowoc for lunch. Baking is one of their many specialties. All of their menu items are made from scratch to give them that distinct homemade taste and it was delicious.
Our third stop was Eberts Greenhouses in Xonia. Over 150,000 square feet of growing space in 38 greenhouses filled with stunning annuals, hanging baskets, vegetables, and perennials. With plants in tow and tired from shopping, we headed home
Thank you to Bonnie, Mary Ellen, Donna and Sharon F for being hostesses for this event. Also thank you to Sharon T for all of the planning that went into this enjoyable outing!
