Thursday, 11/19/2015 - Enjoy nature’s own special beauty during the holidays on our “Christmas in Bloom” tour! You’ll start your tour with a relaxing drive to Encinitas, the flower capital of San Diego County. You’ll spend the morning at Weidner’s Gardens where poinsettias line the driveway and fill the greenhouses! A garden docent will join the group for a demonstration and other information about growing poinsettias. You’ll have plenty of time to visit the retail greenhouse store where you can purchase fresh poinsettias to take home. After your visit to Weidner’s, you’ll travel north to the Balboa Peninsula where you’ll be treated to lunch at the Harborside Restaurant, overlooking Newport Harbor. After lunch you’ll visit Roger’s Gardens for a stroll through the nursery to see the annual “Christmas Fantasy” display of themed Christmas trees. It’s a great place to pick up the perfect wreath or a unique gift for someone special on your list.
