Afternoon Tea Especially for Our Group.
Succop Conservancy is an estate in Butler County just north of where I live.  It is owned by the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania.  It is the latest reserve to be added as a cultural and environmental education center.  It's main attraction at the moment is a wonderful place for weddings and receptions.  It has a lot of walking trails, two ponds and a small herb garden which is lovingly tended by a Penn State Master Gardener from Butler County.  She does a great job!  I went for a visit last week with my friends from Piccadilly Herb Club.  It was a very nice time which included a special afternoon tea just for us.  It is a beautiful day here in the 'Burgh.  Got to go out and get ready for the new furnace tomorrow.  Talk to you later.
