Many people questioned our choice to build a house in the middle of the woods. I just thought it would be beautiful.
I have to say, my love of our place changes with the seasons. I especially like spring as you can see by the view from my bedroom window.
Yes, it is dogwood season in Tennessee. I love it when the dogwoods bloom in the Big Woods.
Can you guess which season I don't especially like in the Big Woods?
It could be fall, because of the presence of deer hunters all around.
But no, I actually like fall because the leaves are so pretty.
It could be winter, because of the danger of limbs falling during an ice storm.
But no, I actually like winter because of the how pretty the woods look when we have a snowfall.
My least favorite season is actually summer...because of the appearance of our friend the "tick".
When ticks appear, my family and I head indoors.
And believe me, there are lots of ticks in the Big Woods.
So for now, I will enjoy my strolling outside and the beauty of the dogwoods. Tick season is not far behind.
