The Shed in The Enchanted Forest

The shed was in the back yard tucked among the tall trees. Katherine Harrison called the woods the enchanted forest as she lay on the ground where the trees were like pencils and appeared to extend up forever. The shed is where Dad stored lumber and other equipment and most importantly where he would dream. Memorably, it was where Mamma was stung by a swarm of hornets – the only time Charles saw Mamma take off her clothes outside the house and run for the water hose to rid herself of the little monsters. While running half naked, Mom screamed, “Get me the water hose!”
