Gene Stratton Porter Tea
Today I enjoyed the nicest afternoon at this beautiful Historical State site. I had seen the announcement in The Star a while back about this day covering herbal teas and a garden tour coming up.
I had called a friend and asked her if she would like to join me for an outing to Rome City for today. Among our mutual friends we ended up bringing a total of 8 women to this really fun event.
The weather couldn't have been more beautiful and the world tour of herbal teas with fancy tea foods and a tour of Gene Stratton Porters home and gardens was excellent. My first time to participate in this event. I certainly recommend it to anyone who has thought about it.
I admit I have a sugar high after consuming all the truffles, cream puffs, etc. FYI...The 'Tea' day is probably more of a ladies day.
