Summer is almost here. Visits on the porch, flowers from the gardens, sounds of lawn mowers in the distance...it is all so far removed from the winter posts that seem like only yesterday that I posted. I thought I would share some pictures of recent porch visits in my life. Moments in time that I wish would have stood still. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy sitting on a porch visiting with relatives(and friends) that I do not get to see near as much as I wish I could.
This is my sister's porch. I have not sat and visited on this lovely porch since last year at this time. She is a warm cordial hostess and a good cook. She had a brunch to celebrate a special birthday of our dear cousin. We sat together, laughing, sharing, and remembering childhood memories. Time went by so quickly. My mother and aunt are wonderful ladies who have taught us all so much throughout our lives. What joy to just sit and share together on this beautiful porch. Notice the centerpiece of her table. She said it is an old sugar mold. She added garden flowers and votives. It was a beautiful way to dress up a table.
The sitting area where my sister spends time on rare moments, visiting with friends and family throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall.
This is my porch. This is my sitting area of choice during the warmer weather. Sometimes, in the very early morning, I just sit in the quiet of the morning and drink my first cup of morning coffee.
