It’s time for Rhondi’s Porch Party. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see the beautiful ways bloggers create their special outdoor space. Take a look at Rhondi’s Rose Colored Glasses to see everyone else’s great ideas.
Here’s mine. This gate leads to my special space.
Just through this gate is the place that has fed my soul, my heart, and busied my hands for months now. This special place is my ‘porch’.
After working in the yard most of the day, I took these photos at dusk- one of my favorite times of the day.
These chairs flank a couch where I enjoy sitting and looking around my yard.
This is my view from that couch.
That view includes my new bird feeder that I bought at Tuesday Morning.
On either side of the couch I have two chairs, with chair seats I covered in black and white stripe fabric from WalMart. Today as I worked, my iPod was playing my wild mix of music.
Knowing my husband was inside ,and he could see me through the back window, I periodically danced by said window- acting like I couldn’t be seen.
I know. Everyone else participating in this party is sitting sedately on their porches, reading and meditating.
By this point, I am in my 3rd set of yard clothes for the day, because the other two mismatched sets were wet and dirty, and I just know he was rolling his eyes. (That was my point!)
This is my favorite view, as many of you know. Just past the fountain are 3 wrought iron pergolas that I will write about another day. Just past those is the little house.
All of this working and photographing made me realize how much I would like to invite my penpals in blogland to a party at my house.
I bought 2 of these candle holders at Tuesday Morning as well. They flank my favorite space.
Come back and see me.
