Come Sit a Spell !

Before we even moved the furniture into the house, we hung the porch swing on the front porch! It was a dream realized for me. Morning coffee, chats with neighbors and a shady break spot when gardening, this is my favorite "room" in our home. Here are some pictures of our front porch over the seasons with more to come soon!

Our front porch in late April 2012 with azaleas and bulbs blooming.
"Window Mirrors" add interest to the porch wall.
May view of the porch flowerbeds with roses and peonies in their glory.
My favorite gourd birdhouse, love those polka-dots!
Gourd birdhouses I hang from the covered porch each spring.

      @Laurali M ~ the mosquitoes might change your mind in summer! : ) But it is a breezy spot and, if you keep moving they aren't bad!
