A place of much needed quiet and solitude: The Woods

So grateful to the special lady in this picture; my Grandmother!! She and my Grandfather moved to the "country" in the 60's. They purchased acres of farm land; beautiful fields and woodland. They knew how to work hard and play hard! My Grandparents built a beautiful home for their five children and a spacious barn. My Grandpa was the Master of the Hounds. I can remember the hounds all barking and riding my favorite horse; Alamo. They also planted dozens of beautiful evergreens; which I LOVE..... When I was twelve my parents built a house across the woods from them; it was magical :-) Literally " over the river and through the woods to grandmothers house we go"...... and since then; the Woods have become like home.....
