The snow is gently falling outside and I find myself wishing I could spend a warm day on the front porch. I’m waiting for spring and even though the ground hog didn’t see his shadow, we still have at least two more months to go.
For now I’ll have to find solace from photos of pretty porches with flowers and rocking chairs.
The other day when it was just a bit warmer I noticed my fish were slowly swimming in the pond. I went out to watch them for a short while and noticed they were eating the string algae that’s accumulated on the rocks. I can’t wait to spend warmer afternoons by the pond.
Here’s a striking front porch with a sunny yellow door to greet you. Lots of gingerbread trim makes it that much more appealing.
Even a small porch is enjoyable when the weather warms up. Especially if you live on a quiet street and can hear the birds sing.
Southern porches are particularly enchanting – especially when they’re two stories tall!
I never thought to put a shelf on the front porch but it could be kind of cute. I have a few places where one would fit. Some of my house plants could sit on it during the summer months.
Honestly, I can’t complain about winter so far. It’s been fairly mild (knock on wood) and my plants are all looking really healthy which makes me happy. It’s the simple things in life that help us get by!
