Summer Porches...

| 6/27/2012 9:48:26 AM

Many of us live in small towns...towns in which most of the homes are trimmed with porches. It's a simple pleasure to find a porch with rockers swaying in the breeze, or a wonderful old porch swing with plump pillows...just the right spot for an afternoon nap.

Some porches in our town are dressed-up with regal pillars alongside urns overflowing with ferns and ivy.


However; driving outside of town, we find smaller  porches with flower-covered latticework, Old Glory waving in the breeze, and enamelware pails filled with cheery red flowers.

Still other porches are quite simple in nature...practical rain barrels and only a tin star for decoration.

Mary, I love sitting on the porch, watching the neighborhood go by. It's my favorite time of day.
