" Although our front porch is where we greet our family and guests our back porch is where we live from early spring until the first frost sends us fleeing. The back porch is really two separate units connected by a walk. The first part is a covered patio and the second part is a wooden deck. By using similar colors on both they flow to together as one unit. This enables us to use the space in any weather because part of it is protected from the elements. My husband and I often have coffee there early in the morning and watch the sun touch the tops of the trees. In the evening we often have a drink and snack together while we feed the goldfish. Our family pets Max and Anne are always close at hand hoping we might drop a crumb or two. One of our greatest enjoyments are the two water features we constructed. One is a simple teakettle that drops its' stream into a small gravel basin. The second was made by stair stepping two barrels that feed into a pond where we have goldfish. Yes, the goldfish do have names. We also enjoy having our family and friends over for BBQ, lemonade and cookies, or something as simple as a watermelon feast.
I hope you enjoy our porch as much as we do."
Stella, thank you so much for taking time to share your lovely porch with all of us. Maybe we can take the chance to drop by your blog to see more! Your porch is beautiful and lush with all of your gorgeous flowers. It is truly a romantic porch! I really think your hanging "candle chandy" is quite stunning and romantic also!
P.S. Thank you sweet friends for your sweet anniversary comments and sharing your wedding memories too. I'm trying to get around to each one of you to thank you personally. I appreciated it so much.
