I've been inspired by the green thumbs and artistic skills of friends who have a knack for creating beautiful spaces. In other words, I have seen some back yards that just beg me to sit and rest awhile, maybe even with a special beverage. (I'm talkin' coffee, people!)
I have seen humbler retreats more reminiscent of my own; an aging, worn deck or not-so-perfect patio with a lawn chair and a pot of flowers -- or not.
|See the hummer feeder? Hummers delight me!|
Porch time. I am going to adopt that term.
Though we have a deck, not porch, I love to eat there,
bird watch there,
and talk with my husband over margaritas there.
My mother knows full well that porch time means down time, and maybe even talk-on-the-phone-long-distance time.
Porch time is ME time.
And it's time to get me some!
Hope you find plenty of porch time this summer!
