Indiana Home

This is where I come from.  The view from the back door where I grew up, where Kitty still lives.  She’s been on this land for many decades and has done it justice.  It’s like a little park.

The woods in the background on the far side of the field is a patch of the great forest that once covered most of Indiana, interrupted only by prairies, swamps and thousands of pretty little lakes.  Something just opens up inside me when I get here.

Farmer Kitty.  My brother B and I (I cannot keep track of all the nicknames sometimes!) helped build the raised garden a few years ago.  Pea pods for supper!

I love the back deck.  The sliding glass door and deck were added after I moved out, but they fit so well.  It’s lovely to sit under the ash tree and enjoy the sound of the leaves in the breeze.

  1. Looks so peaceful and refreshing. How fortunate you are to have these deep roots, and to be able to go home.

    That was my thought, too. How wonderful to know where you came from, and to be able to go back there. It looks like a beautiful place.
