My Big Front Porch

Our front porch is probably the biggest "room" in the house.  And I think that it is our favorite too.
 I finally got around to painting it a few weeks ago. That is something that I try to do every year but I think I skipped last year so it was looking a little rough.

I like bright doors.  This one used to be purple, but purple doors became quite popular so we changed it.  Now this color seems to be popular too, but I am not really anxious to paint the screen door so I don't expect changes any time soon.  Speaking of the screen door, it is new.  I have wanted a slammin' screen door for years.  Now, thanks to our friend Henry we have one...custom-made.
This side is where we do most of our sitting.

One morning recently, just after I finished painting the porch, the bed was a little rumpled and things were moved around.  There was no wind the night before and no tracks that would indicate varmints.  I guess someone just took a rest some time during the night.  Oh well....
I think it is time to head out there now with a gin and tonic.  The days are shorter and we need to enjoy as much porch time as possible.

  1. The new paint job is beautiful! The porch looks so welcoming and the perfect place for reading, chatting or just being.
