George & Alice's toasty sun room

Back in rural Saline County, Kansas, sorta near Salina, this is the sun room at George and Alice's, also known as the parents of my friend Rolf Potts. Rolf lives nearby, so on the recent pilgrimage that a group of us made for his birthday, we spent a lot of time visiting with George and Alice, who were kind enough to have coffee and fruit and homemade baked goods waiting for us every morning in their kitchen. This is the sun room before noon. Isn't it amazing! It's an earth house, which means it's built into the land (Rolf's dad is an environmental biologist), but this side is open to the prairie and welcomes an abundance of light, making the room--and the rest of the house--toasty warm. Also, plants!

So cute: Mrs. Potts was a teacher. This chair is signed by one of her long-ago classes. Great idea for teachers. There's a nest in the tree! They found it outside.
The pup wants to come in, or she wants us to come out. Of course, we obeyed. Ada and I tried out the cowgirl-prairie look. Forgive my weird outfit; it was cold. At least you can't see my black sweatpants. Rolf and the pups.
