I have seen many beautiful cemeteries.  Of all the cemeteries I have visited the ones that are set aside for rural people are often my most favorites.  I cannot imagine a better way to be honored than by being laid to rest in a meadow that will forever be full of wild flowers.

Molly the witch (Paeonia mlokosewitchii) signals the height of spring in my garden. Always used to bloom for mother's day--but just a tad early this year...

The above just trumped the pictures posted from my garden.

Story
Tagline
Born in Oak Creek. Reared in Boulder. 32 years a Denverite. In my imagination I wander the sokaks of Constantinople
Introduction
When I was a child I was in love with the Iliad and Odyssey and wanted to grow up to be an ancient Greek. Alas, my wish is coming true. Be careful what you wish for.
Bragging rights
I have trod the steppes and heights of five continents, and redacted them in my garden, so to speak.
Education
  • University of Colorado at Boulder
    1972

I wonder what on earth happened to those two other reviewers who inflicted the one star: I (along with 17 others who accompanied me) was utterly charmed by the excellence of the lodgings: they're up to date, impeccably clean and very stylish. The country club like atmosphere of the main buildings (dining rooms, bar, living areas) was airy and very comfortable. The endless expanses of beautifully kept lawns and gardens in full bloom were breathtaking: and the views of the dramatic mountain ridge (you could practically reach out and touch it) were gorgeous. We arrived in pea soup fog, but the next day was crystalline: I wish we could have stayed a week! In fact, I'm planning on going back as soon as I can manage...from the USA, it's not too easy, alas.

Lots of exotic Mediterranean foods (best source for most ingredients for Greek Cooking like REAL Oregano or a wide variety of pasta noodles). The meats in the new deli are good quality, and the prices for veggies and fruit are on the low side. The always warm Ciabatta (how do they do that?) is addictive--don't get hooked. Pete, his sons and his staff are always warm and friendly. I drop by a couple times a week (although I confess it's right on my commute from work to home--very convenient!).

This unbelievably scenic setting has been lovingly re-built in recent years: most of the Roundavels are quite luxurious and very comfortable. The price is ridiculously reasonable at current exchange rates (for Americans at least). The setting is to die for, and the hosts helpful and friendly. The food is more than acceptable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone! Only caveat: the only road from Witsieshoek to Sentinel parking lot is only for four wheel drive vehicles: the walk is pleasant but a bit long if you want to make it to the chain ladder in a day and back (let alone Mount-aux-Sources. There is a toll for coming to Witsieshoek assessed a few miles away by local "authorities" and they charge you at the parking lot as well (both are not too expensive). It looks as though they are trying to "pave" the road to Sentinel (with bricks--incredible) so this may change in a few years time. This is one of the finest wildflower locations on planet earth.
