In case you don't know, the Box Hill Picnic is the pivotal turning point in the Jane Austen novel, Emma. Since Emma is the novel we read this month, we decided to have a picnic at the Chattanooga Nature Center. (I got to see a red tailed hawk up close and personal--I love red tailed hawks. Actually, all hawks.) We spread our quilts at a river's edge and had great fun: good food, Jane talk, lovely fellowship, and it wasn't too hot.
Also, my dress wasn't too hot and I could actually breathe much to my surprise. Here are the pictures I promised of my gown and hat. If you'd like to see our Box Hill picnic, here's the link to our blog site: http://all-things-jane.blogspot.com/
