For some strange reason...as the temperature rises....and summer is upon us....we like to celebrate CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!! Perhaps we think this will make us feel less of the summer warmth??? Not sure!! I hope you will take minute to hop on over to my Poppye Shoppe on Lemon Poppy Seeds and take a peek at the offerings I have for you!! If a raggedy is what you are looking for, be sure to visit my other Poppye Shoppe just for raggedies, too!!

While strolling the streets of the Village of Telluride, the liveliness and the serenity of the this mountain town are all around. The town is very much a bustle of activity, hosting more festivals throughout the year than any other town in America, from what I was told. However, just a block off the main street, the peacefulness of a quiet old mining still remains.
One of the adventures of late June is the absolutely superb music festival from Thursday thru Sunday in Telluride, CO......a most scenic box canyon at nearly 9,000 feet high in the mountains. The festival always features some of the best in bluegrass and other genres of music, with Sam Bush guaranteed to be putting on a fabulous show and truly one of the festival highlights!! The events sponsored by Planet Bluegrass are definitely the best in the festivals that I have attended. The next is the annual Rocky Grass festival in Lyons, CO. I have shared some shots of the festival, the workshop stage events, the main stage, the canyon, and the crowds here and there....as well as some pictures of the children's parade!!! ENJOY!!!!
