I apologize for my very late arrival to the front porch party (hosted by Rhondi, here). It has been a crazy day... 8:00 p.m., and I am finally home and ready to post the photo of my front porch. I hope I haven't missed all the fun!
You can see that mine really isn't a porch. It's just a medium-sized stoop. This is a good "before" picture, though. We are probably going to do some major landscaping in our yard, and part of the remodeling will include some changes to this front stoop. A long time from now, you might get to see an "after" picture. When? I would suggest that you not hold your breath.
Since my front porch is rather boring (and gets too hot on a sunny afternoon), I'll also invite you to my back deck. It's cooler here - in the shade - and we have a little more space to sit and sip some lemonade, or if you'd rather, eat a lucious piece of Lemon Meringue Pie. Very summery, don't you think??
(Who spilled the butter along the bottom of my deck? Or is that the lemon for the pie I was about to make??? No, silly, it's Blogger being uncooperative again.)
If we are lucky, we can also watch the wren family build their nest in this little tent we provided for them. Can you see the little stick poking out of the hole? That's what the daddy wren put in there.. the mommy puts in the softer stuff like grasses. They have been singing such beautiful songs, but they are rather shy, and if you make a lot of noise, we won't get to see them.
What have the rest of you eaten or watched on your front porch today?
