Spring Front Porch

Everything here is covered in pollen…

how is it where you are?

We had a fun few days in the garden

last week….Handsome took a couple of days off

and we got a lot accomplished.

Pressure washing, weeding, planting….etc.

We also springified the front porch.

You can’t help but love pansies….they look like little happy faces.

AND, they are GREAT on salads.

We add them to our salads for a little

peppery kick. {They also look lovely, too!}

The two-dove sculpture was left on my porch

as a present from a friend a few weeks ago.

Don’t you just love fun surprises….

especially when someone knows you so well????

We have a lot of fun with our French Cafe Sidewalk

Chalkboard that Handsome made.

We’ve found so many fun uses for it…..

We just reused our branches from Christmas and winter

and hung some paper mache Easter eggs on them.

Our front porch is our therapy spot.

We eat meals on the dining table we have out there,

hang out in the porch swing and read, talk, drink

lemonade or our beloved sweet tea.

We made a list of what we would have to have in a house if we ever moved…..

Number one is always a big front porch

and Number two is always a wood-burning fireplace.

The front porch was what first drew us to Oak Cottage.

Before we even had a realtor show it to us we would come

and sit on the front porch swing trying to decide

if this was definitely the cottage for us.

{No one lived here…it was basically abandoned.}

For almost 17 years now we have sat in that same

porch swing knowing that it was.

Do you have a porch that you enjoy?

  2. What a welcoming scene. I can see why you enjoy your porch. We love ours too and eat out there often. The only problem is where we live the porch season is too short. Wish we had more warm weather,

    • Aren’t porches wonderful? We have a long ‘porch season’….but it gets so terribly hot and humid here in the summers that there are usually quite a few weeks that it’s hard to enjoy the porch without plugging in the fans.
