Porch Sittin' Time: Patriotic and Pleasant












The old farmhouse has the market cornered on a color-theme for patriotic holidays that's made to order.





It's my favorite time of year, when we can pull out all the stops...
and enjoy the red, white and blue.


My favorite place to enjoy the patriotic colors is the porch!






Care to sit on the porch with me?






Come on out!









Which rocker do you want?  


There's a cozy throw on the back just in case you get a chill...









Here's a big mug 'o coffee....just the way you like it.
And a muffin, too.








Listen to that whisper of a breeze--and feel it so soft on your cheek and the birds singing and the leaves rustling over our heads. 


We can visit,
or
not...
or






We can companionably read the newspaper...






Normally, I'm a hit-the-floor-in-the-morning and run type of person, and I don't stop often until my head hits the pillow that night.  


But, it's past time to take it a little bit easy.

How about you?






















After that long and bitter winter, isn't it nice that the sky is finally blue and the air is pleasant, the breezes soft and gentle, and a soft carpet of green lays under that canopy of leaves?


Spring is feeling a whole lot summery.





The perfect time to enjoy a porch.
Thanks for sitting a spell.

So do you have a porch to enjoy?
 I hope so!

Your home is a beautiful background for the red and blue. I would love to sit on the porch awhile..then walk around and look at the flowers! And hang clothes on the line.
