Welcome to my porch! Let's enjoy some ice tea and visit for awhile! We live in an older farmhouse home with a very long porch...it is inviting and we love to sit here and enjoy the beautiful weather!

ow this is our back porch, by our pool. We love to have people over and barbecue, have luncheons, or just have a good old fashion swimming party with lots of kids and relatives...
Below is a picture of our deck off the patio...right now the patio is covered with boxes since we have been moving my parents in with us.

A wheelbarrow full of seasonal flowers....

A chicken waterer hammered onto a post~turned into a bird waterer.

Stay for awhile and we can visit outside and enjoy a lovely day together...
telling funny stories....
thinking up new spray painting projects...
Be sure to visit everyone with a neighborly visit!

I definitely wish we were close enough for me to come visit your fabulous home and outdoor area. It all looks so welcoming and inviting. When I get to visit I'll bring the banana pudding!!!! I already had to make ANOTHER big bowl of it and it is almost GONE!

Hope you have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend.♥

Hi Debbie

I'd love to sit and visit awhile anywhere on your porches (front or back). Your flowers look wonderful, especially the roses.

Enjoy a fabulous holiday!

I love the red, white and blue theme. Your porch looks so pretty. I'm sure you love sitting out there all summer long.
It's perfect for the Memorial Day weekend too, and it's supposed to be nice weather. Have a wonderful one.
