I'm helping Anne put together kits of Anne's Bee Fields Shawl
and therefore, I have less time in the evenings to work on
pictures for the blog or write posts about our weekend The fun should, therefore (again), drag on
longer this week while you anticipate Hidcote's debut. Helping out a friend is very important to me, I'll
cruelly keep you in anticipation a bit longer.
July is about our annual trip to Cedar City to stay with Neena while we attend the Shakespeare Festival, which we have attended for 28 years. (Oh my!)
What a like about Neena's place in the desert...
Stars! There are more stars in the sky at her place than any other city spot I've been (you can even see the Milky Way!).
Party time! Neena (and her hubby D) know how to throw a party. One of the most amazing places on their property is the fire pit. Every stone you see (and about a billion more) N & D brought in and laid with they're own hands...sweat equity, in large proportions, has gone into the grounds around their home.
Scenery! Neena is one hour from Bryce and the views around her place are fabulous, too! Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos from her deck, but here is one of the plateaus and hoodoos in Bryce Canyon. (click for big)
Quiet time. Because Neena's place is in the desert it is very quiet and peaceful. The mornings were filled with natures sound track from birds and insects. It was a joy to sit in the quite landscape and knit. I made good progress on Ruby/Thelonious and the Phyllo Sweater (which is just a big block of stockinette stitch at this point).
Tomorrow, more Bryce pictures!
