At last, the air has warmed and the birds have returned and again the front porch has become a very enjoyable place to rest. A welcoming place to sit a spell. Front porch living includes pretty daisies in a sprinkling can sitting atop a little round wicker table.
Front Porch Living
Peeking through the spiderwort plants, a plant the came by unexpectedly and just appeared one day. It pops up in random places needing to be pulled where not wanted but the little purple flowers are so sweet.
With a large family and many grandchildren, we try to provide lots of porch seating. Have you noticed that a porch tends to have a draw for both quiet sitting and also small group chatting?
No annuals available yet to fill the hanging planter (a birthday gift from a friend), the urns and the beds. I really wish I could fine pretty annuals in yellow other than marigolds. Any suggestions?
Those ever faithful Hostas can be counted on to return each year and add interest to the flower bed without needing much attention.

Thanks for the beautiful visit, I like hibiscus too, Hawaii has the only one 'found' in the world with a scent. Perhaps I can swap pictures of my Koki`okea for your scripture recipe for our Youth Group. Raliegh (Lahaina)

I could easily spend an entire summer sitting on that porch. What a clever swing, too! jan
What a lovely porch! Oh yes, I certainly could spend some leisurely time out in this pretty place…with a spectacular view of a beautiful yard too!!! I love your white wicker porch swing…what a great idea to revamp a settee! I love the black and white color combination and the pretty watering can full of daisies is just perfect!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with all of us!!!
Have a blessed and safe Memorial Day weekend!

You have a lovely place to relax. I’ve always loved porches best. We have a deck, but I long for a white porch, maybe someday.
Your porch looks so inviting, we are forecast more rain tomorrow, so we sure wont be sitting outside!

What a crisp, refreshing place to relax and enjoy your family! I’m sure you have great memory-making time out there!
Your porch and yard are lovely…Love the black and white. Enjoy it!
Beautiful porch! I love it, and the colors are so unique. I love different combinations like that. And how cool to turn an old setee into a porch swing!
I see pictures of Raider on your side bar. We have a mini schnauzer too. He is SUCH a wonderful dog! We got him from the pound believe it or not. They had rescued him from a puppy mill! His name is Fritz. He loves the whole family and is great with my small children!
That is a very lovely sitting area. The theme is great throughout. I had a swing once and I miss it so much. Enjoy.
