Needless to report, Navajo rugs are a major attraction in this region. The best way to purchase a rug is directly from the weaver, who is often the person who raised the sheep, carded and spun the wool, dyed the yarn, and finally designed and created the rug. The second best way is to go to the Crown Point, NM rug auctions. They are held once a month and you will find masses of beautiful weavings, large and small, at the most reasonable prices. Kelly Place has some rugs for sale which were purchased from Navajo weavers who came to us or from the Crown Point auction. This rug (17″ x 23″) is a raised weave, giving it a 3-dimensional effect.

The annual birding festival is coming up, May 8-12! There are already a lot of summer birds here at Kelly Place. Marc is stocking up on seed. By the end of summer, I get tired of hearing the white-wing doves, but I realize I missed them over the winter!
We have over 89 bird species identified at Kelly Place in the past.

I was heart broken to see him gone so I’ll have to carry on his placid energy and be his spirit, here he is:
