Welcome to my porch!

Lets join Rhondi over at Rose Colored Glasses for her porch party...Thanks for hosting this party it is fun and a great way to start summer. This is the front entry, I know you have seen this before~
Coming up the walk.


Or if you come in the back way, notice it is still cold here 38 degrees this morning....so the windows are still in the front and the screens are only on the back side. It is still cool for a meal on the porch.

We can sit here in the warm sunshine. This is a great spot for morning coffee.




Once the weather gets warmer, this is a cool spot to curl up and read or sit for a chat.

We can sit over here for a meal...you know when it gets to the time when there are bugs.



There is a coconut candle for a nice summer smell.





When dusk is upon us...or a rainy day.
Thanks for coming by a visiting my porch.

Beautiful front entry and the back porch is gorgeous. I'm jealous of the cool weather, it's so hot here. Love the sun porch, it looks so cozy and inviting. Your home is just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty
