I've had a few people ask me where the name of my blog came from. Well, not long before I started my blog, I was trying to explain to the old lady at the post office which house was ours and as I was explaining it she said "oh, the house with the Hawthorns". You see we have Hawthorn trees lining our property on two sides. I think there are 18 of them in total.
Then as a nod to the art of writing I spell it with an "e" on the end because Nathaniel Hawthorne, the great American writer, spelled his last name with an "e" on the end. Very deep and meaningful. OK, I may have thought that part out a little too much.
Now, who would hate a pretty little tree so much? Well, the guy who has to mow under and around 18 of them.
