Where I Learned to Love

As a child I had the pleasure of getting to spend time visiting my great-aunt's house. It was a warm home, nestled sweetly in a large wooded lot; bushes that bloomed with the sweetest flowers adorned the front - as if the house had grown delicately from the garden and it sat as naturally as any other flower.
