COME SIT ON THE PORCH FOR A BIT

Come, sit a spell on the porch with us...

It might be the middle of "Polar Vortex" season, er, Winter, but let's time travel back to some warmer weather pictures to remind us of those warmer days.
I was sitting in the rocker, enjoying the breeze one Fall day, when I decided to take some pictures from where I was sitting to share the view...


This is the view turning to the right and looking at one end of the porch and the mudroom door...


Then here it is, looking off the porch in the same general direction.  A little bit beyond that clump of trees is where the future barn and chicken area will be...


This is looking straight ahead from where I was sitting toward the driveway and beyond the tree (that I now notice needs to be trimmed now that Spring is around the corner, ha) is 2nd Family's back pasture...


This is turning to the left somewhat, where you can see the garden area (and our usual parking spot).  You can also see the edge of the front porch stairs...


And then this is looking completely to the left, total opposite of the first picture, in the direction of the other end of the porch and the side set of stairs leading toward Barnabas.  The front door to the foyer area is to the left, just out of the view of the picture.

Thanks for stopping by!
Come back soon!

    1. Ha, thanks. Yeah, he's a great old Mesquite tree. Hopefully it will become a great outdoor dining area this Spring/Summer.

  7. It's so nice to GREEN pictures! Thank you so much. It's starting to green up here now, after all the rain we had last week. My maple trees have their red glow to them now. And the daffodils are blooming and hyacinth are popping up. I was just about sick of brown, so thanks for the green pictures!

    1. Yes, us too....it's so boring when everything is brown and no leaves. I didn't get to the bulbs last Fall (planting them) so we don't have any spring bulbs coming but we do get wildflowers here in Texas so we should be good with some color in another month or so. Thanks!!
