Sometimes I just love to sit on the porch swing late at night and think. It's when I do my best thinking...I don't believe Dino even knows I'm out there. Last night was the perfect thinking night. The honeysuckle and the creek smell like a blessing from heaven. It reminds me of being a little girl with hot long summers were we would play outside late into the evening and sometimes sleep on the porch. I grew up on a farm although my parents are not farmers. My Mom fell in love with this little patch of land while my Dad was at work. I believe it was an ancient ash tree that actually sealed the deal. When he came home from work she told him "I bought a house". My Dad has always been a "laid back whatever makes you happy" kind of guy but I really wonder what he was thinking as she drove him up this steep winding red dog dirt road that looked like it was going to no mans land. That was in 1976. I was 8 and my sister was 4. We thought it was great. We had a barn, a tree house and acres of woods to roam around and make-believe in. Now that we are grown up and moved away, my mom has taken a few acres of those woods and made it a wonderful secret garden. It's just as magical now as it was when we were little. Yesterday morning I walked around those woods with my Mom and took some photos of all her hard work. So many special memories I have here.
