July and Augst have been our summery break. During the summer

Andy and his family set a lovely table for their guests. There was a wide array of mains, sides, desserts, and beverages. There were about twenty people that attended the picnic, including members and their families.

Along with having time to leisurely socialize in this lovely setting it was a wonderful treat to be able to talk with Andy about the plants in his greenhouse. There were orchids and nepenthes everywhere you looked. It was truly a site to behold.
