Events, Musings, Poems


winefestivalCalling all women who love WINE . . . WILDFLOWERS . . . WRITING. We will be doing all three at the Wine, Women & Wildflowers Workshop on May 17, Saturday, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. The photo on the left was taken in one of the fields we will be walking in as we look at wildflowers.

The bottles represent a sampling of the wines from small Oklahoma towns we will be trying out. We will have a variety of sweet and dry wines from such wineries as DiamondHead in Pryor, Nuyaka Creek in Bristow, Blue Coyote in Adair, Summerside in Vinita, and Oak Hills Winery in Chelsea. And that bottle on the far right with no label??? Yes, that’s mead I made, with a bit (!) of help from my honeybees, aged a few years now!

My first event at the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry was a Honey Mead & Poetry Day in 2012, wherein we sampled my first batch of mead. I have a few bottles left, and they should be even tastier now.

This workshop is $20 and covers the wine, refreshments, workshop instruction, museum and land tour, and countless golf cart rides. You can pay in advance through PayPal, but you can wait and pay when you come. The main thing is to register by May 14, so I will know how many people are coming and can purchase more wine if necessary.

If you are traveling a distance, let me know if you want to spend the night. We can find a place on the compound for you.winefestival
