Now this is an awesome view!
Have you ever spent time on a front porch? Do you have wonderful memories of sitting on a front porch with someone you love...like Grandma and Grandpa? Or are you one of the lucky ones who has their very own front porch to sit and while away a beautiful day? My first wonderful memories of spending time on a front porch was at my Grandparents home in Manitoba Canada. It was actually a veranda but had wonderful windows with screens so you could enjoy the fresh breezes and the scent of lilacs and peonies and roses. Then in my adult life my husband and I built a front porch on our home that we eventually sold. Next was a beautiful old Victorian home with a front porch that we enjoyed for a short time before moving here to the farm.
This is our small front porch here on the farm
Now we have a tiny front porch that has room for an old cast iron and wood park bench a few plants and that's about it. The great thing about it is that it faces one of our lilac groves and happens to be downwind of that wonderful nostalgic scent that takes me right back to my Grandparents home.
I love this porch..look at the sky lights to bring light into the bow window...love it!
We have a plan...for the future. We are going to build a front porch across the whole front of our little farm cottage. It will certainly be a labor of love as we will do the work ourselves. I'm not looking forward to the work...again....but I look forward to spending time on that porch and recalling precious memories of happy times with my dear Nana and Grandpa and making new memories here in the country.
Now this is a wonderful sunny porch...love the door and the wicker furniture and flowers!
Wouldn't you like to put your feet up with a glass of Iced Tea out here?
Nice deep porch and what a lovely garden to enjoy as you relax.
Wouldn't you love to be sitting here sipping lemonade?
Our porch swing is waiting to be hung on a new porch.
This porch needs a flower garden surrounding it but what a nice place to sit.
I think you'd be sipping a mint julep on this front porch.
I hope you've enjoyed visiting these porches....have a wonderful day!
(hopefully on a front porch)
