Playing on the porch

Spring is here and I can't wait for it to be warm enough to use the porch.

I love birds nests and have found a few on the ground. They are so intricate.
I grew these gourds a few years ago in the garden. I have had them laying around, stuffed in baskets and such. I saw a photo of them hanging on Pinterest so I tied them up and hung them.

My porch is how most people visiting enter my home. It is how the family comes in through the garage. It is a great mudroom, sitting room, place to house garden plants. It has windows through the winter months and soon we will put the screens in. I love to go out there to read and sit with a cup of coffee. Won't you join me?

It looks like a wonderful place to sit an relax. I used to have a screen porch Back East, and it was so much fun to decorate with birdhouses and flowers and birds. Yours reminds me of that. Thanx for sharing. Blessings for a wonderful weekend. ~Sara

I'd be pleased to join you. I can see the appeal of sitting there with a cup of coffee and getting one's bearings for the day.
