This week I'm sharing a familiar visit that most of us have encountered at one time or another, visiting an old home we've owned when we're back in town.
As I drove through Harrisburg, NC about 10 days ago, I couldn't resist driving by the former homestead that was our first when moving south from PA. Camera in hand, I snapped a few from the curbside...even on a rainy day it still looked grand. Of course everything (the trees we'd planted) seemed so huge. The Deodora Evergreen tree to the left of the house foundation was planted only nine years ago, and it now is higher than the home. I still remember standing there and getting my picture taken with it and sending to my Beloved to show him. (he was working in AZ at the time on business). The yellow Forsythia on the back side of the home blooming was planted from a root of my mothers from the home I was raised in from PA.
