Our Front Porch

All of these photos are from Spring 2010.....

The front and side porches of our home

Our Georgia weather is warming up some but not enough to plant flowers..I do have some little shoots peeking out of the ground, though!

Every morning, my husband (who is now retired) and I (who am NOT retired) have our coffee sitting on the front porch.
No matter what the weather, we just bundle up if it is cold!

It's normally around 6AM or so, after I've been up for an hour and he's just crawled out of bed!

Our 3 dogs join us, we talk about what the day might bring, I get ready for work and off I go!

My very favorite shed door...I LOVE this door!!

I'm looking forward to planting more flowers as soon as the weather cooperates.  I love their sunny faces!!

Ace' is peeking out the door!!

But, since I'm joining the porch party over at Gypsy Brochante, I dug out some photos of last Spring.

Can't wait for SPRING 2011!!



  1. Sherry I am a sherry too! I just love your porch what a beautiful place to sit and drink coffee! Happy Porch sitting

  2. What a nice way to start each and every day ... I wouldn't ever want to leave for work!!... All cozy with coffee and hubby, how do you do it?

    I am also looking forward to spring and planting some flowers ... next week topic is just that ... Spring Inspiration ... bring it on!!


  3. It was warm today and we worked to ready our flower garden and yard for spring for 7 hours and I am now hurting all over. I would have coffee on that lovely porch too. Your hubs is a dear to get up with you. Joe leaves me sleeping every day. hugs♥O

  4. Your porch looks so cozy and inviting, I wouldn't want to go to work!!!

  6. I love your porch, it looks so inviting. I am also looking forward to spring flowers. My daffodils are up about 4 inches and some tulips are braving the weather too, they are peeking out of the ground. Now the weather man is calling for snow tomorrow and Thursday. Poor flowers, they will be shivering.

  7. This would be a lovely place to have morning coffee! I just adore the wash tub flowerbed! ...and Ace peeking out the door is sweet. We also have shoots just peeking through the ground. I am looking forward to the bright colors of Spring.

    Happy Monday!

  8. What a great way to start the day. Sounds like the perfect tradition. When we cleared out the farm we sold 2 wringer washers like that from my Grandmother. Great idea to plant it! Love your door too!!♥♥
    Thank you for your encouraging comment. I'm trying ;)

  9. I just love your place here! I also am drooling over your BEAUTIFUL porch!
    I can't remember if I ever asked you what part of Ga. you live in. I lived all over Ga. in the 90's while working for private Arabian horse farm. I really miss Ga...
    The post below is hilarious with your pup barking at himself in the window! We couldn't live without them could we!

    Thanks for your kind words today and good wishes! It is sweet people like you that keep blogging wonderful!
