Sitting On The Porch

It's starting to look a little more like spring around here. Today, will be a beautiful, sunny 59 degrees. That makes me want to start cleaning up the gardens and getting things ready for planting.

Or maybe, get the porch all prettied up, sit in my rocking chair, and read a good book.

Looking at these pictures definitely makes me want to get outside and get the porch ready for the season ahead.

I hope the weather is nice where you are and that you make a little time for yourself to sit on the porch.

I read once that that's what's wrong with the world - not enough houses with porches. When you have a porch, you see what's going on in your neighborhood, with your neighbors and you show the rest of the world that this is your neighborhood and you care about it. To drink lemonade, to say "Hello" to passerby's - and I tend to agree. I think we should rally and force everyone who builds new homes to have porches - and give a stimulus to older home owner to build porches! Oh well, one can dream - thanks for the great photos and the artwork you received is lovely!

Ah, I can smell the flowers blooming in the yard and can hear the icecubes clinking in the lemonaide pitcher. To rock on the porch in summer, BLISS! Thank you for the peak into summer!
