Beautiful porches, I got some ideas, thank you for sharing.
Happy May 1st. !
Oh goodness, what beautiful homes! I romantically imagine how special it would be to live in one of them, and then I realize the UPKEEP and I know that the special person to live in them is not me. I can’t tell you the admiration that I have for folks like you who are painstakingly preserving these glorious homes and the sense of wonder and history they bring to us “mere mortals.” You truly are somewhat super-human. Thank you for sharing these beautiful ladies and your own personal journey in yours.
Oh, you said just what I was thinking, thank you.
