The temp was in the mid 70’s, the air was void of humidity, a gentle breeze was whispering through the trees and there was glorious sunshine and blue sky! A day to be outside for sure. Two times a year a neighbor, who is a professional potter, holds an event she has named “Meadowfest” on her lovely property. Along with all that she creates, there are various other artisans who set up their displays and, today, the fiddlers were playing to add to the festive atmosphere. She does a ‘mailing’ a couple weeks prior to alert everyone to mark the date……..
So I set out after lunch and headed west on our ridge about 1 & 1/2 miles . Our county is still reeling from last weekend’s many inches of rain and signs such as this are common….The road I was to turn on had sustained some damage but was open to traffic, thankfully. In this region of ‘coulees’ and hills, one has to know all the alternate ways of getting from ‘here’ to ‘there’. The summer colors are so vivid and the flowers in bloom. A day for a leisurely afternoon stroll among some wonderful country gardens and art that is absolutely ‘first class’! A wood fired oven baked focaccia bread that was available for sampling with homemade hummus. Yum! Jean Colette’s demo on painting on silk attracted many on-lookers.Time to head for home and a little more stitching on the red, white and blue table-runner. Another week ahead……and one that contains a holiday!! Yippee!!!
