It’s hard to believe August is almost halfway done and some kids have already started back to school. Fortunately the days will still be warm for a couple more months, so there’s still time to enjoy simple pleasures on the front porch.
Every porch needs some foliage like the twin container gardens flanking the front door of this farmhouse style porch. The brick steps pair well with the wood porch floor.
I think everyone loves a big wrap around porch and if it’s hugging a pretty historic home – all the better!

One thing I’ve noticed about some of the newer houses in our area is that the builder doesn’t make them deep enough to enjoy. I don’t know why that is, other than to save building costs.
I don’t mind a small porch like this one. At least there’s enough room for a rocking chair and the light fixture is charming.
I think it’s best though if a front porch has enough space for several people to gather and enjoy the fresh air.
I have to admit, we don’t spend as much time on our porch as we used to ever since we got the pond. But it’s still a relaxing place to unwind and enjoy the last weeks of summer.
What ways to you like to enjoy the last of this warm, sunny season?
