Grandma’s House

This is the back of my mama and dad’s house in Traverse City, Michigan.We always refer to it as Grandma’s house. It is an old farmhouse. It seems to sag a little with fatigue.

The left side of the photo shows the round screened-in porch that can be accessed from inside the front hallway or from the front porch which runs the length of the house.  A back porch has been enclosed and houses a hot tub. The dormer window is in my parent’s bedroom upstairs as well as the first window on the east side. the next window is to the guest room where I am staying. The picture windows are in the living room.

One picture window looks out onto the lake while the other oversees the fenced back yard. In spring white, purple, and lavender lilac bushes higher than my head surround the house and yard and drown them in the delicious scent.

In the summer Dad keeps a garden, fishes on the lake, and tends black-raspberry bushes on the slope behind the house. Though I never lived in this house, since my parents moved here after I was married, I have visited them here many times and love the old house and the memories it holds.

While I am here for a few weeks caring for my parents, I would like to show you the inside of this house. So, I will be posting pictures and stories called The Corners of Grandma’s House.
