Do you have a Front Porch? I do, it is wonderful. We use that front porch everyday that we can. Today is one of those days. It amazes me that I am sitting in a rocking chair on my front porch and blogging. Wow, We've came a long way baby!! ( Now you guys know how old I am, that is an old saying from an old commercial from way back). Those pictures are of my front porch today. And Yes that is Rocky looking at me like I am a lunatic for daring to leave him inside. Also normally we have 2 American flags, but the Wind twisted the Flag holder, and I have to buy a new one.
The Front Porch is like an extension to our house. Its another room. It might only be able to be used for about 8 months of the year. But it is wonderful. Our Front Porch is large, we have 3 large Rocking Chairs, 2 small Rocking Chairs, and a large Bench on the porch. Sometimes they are all full plus the stairs.
The Front Porch is nice because it keeps you in touch with the world. Neighbors go by, they wave or stop and chat. Sometimes, total strangers will wave or toot their horns, of course we wave back. The Front Porch is so welcoming to me. I can't imagine a home without a porch.
We also have a back porch, it is nice because it is all screened in, My mom loves to sit out there and watch all the birds that come to feed in the feeders. The Squabbling Messy Blue Jays, the Cardinals our state bird, The Doves, the Nuthatchers, the Wrens and Sparrows. We also have quite a few Hummingbirds in the Backyard in the Summer. They are amazing little creatures and last year we found a little Hummingbird nest. So tiny.
Well I guess that is all for now, If you do have a Front Porch I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
