Our House in the Winter
Our house sits on top of a hill on the corner
of Oyster River Road and Garden Lane.
To get to my studio on the top floor
you have to go up three flights of stairs.
I have planted flower beds on all the hillsides
so I don't have to mow them when I mow the lawn.
Now it is mostly flower beds
and not so much lawn.
The big hillside near the street is covered
with honeysuckle and wild roses.
It is a wild jungle.
Woodchucks have lived there and bees
and a variety of animals that make our lawn bumpy.
