Grindwell Knowe (The Gate to the Well)

We drove through the countryside as sunset turned to dusk and then dark and when I awakened the following morning, what was my surprise to see a magical landscape surrounded by the North Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean which converge in the Shetland Islands? Of course the green hills and dales were dotted with sheep, many being very curious and coming right up to us to see what we were doing as we took our morning walk. There are lakes everywhere in Shetland and unimaginable shades of gray and blue.  Susie’s garden provides a plethora of color and shapes… all the more vibrant with the background of the whitewashed chocolate box house….
