The Unveiling Of The Summer House Garden

The former owner of my farm, Mrs. Sharp, occupied two houses on the property.  She called the house on the corner the Summer House, where she stayed during warm weather.  Adjacent to it is the Winter House, (where I live) which had a better heating system and where Mrs. Sharp was comfortable during the cold months.  I like that story and kept the names of the buildings, although major changes were made to both.  Today, the Summer House is where some of my large collection of books is kept.  I also like to use it for entertaining.  I've been working on the garden out back, a kind of room walled by a tall hedge of boxwood.  Last fall, many things were planted and I can't wait to continue there.  This past week, that garden had its spring unveiling.
