Oh, how I love my back porch. Mr. P worked so hard last summer building it and this year we are certainly enjoying the fruits of his labor. This is where I spend my quiet time in the morning ~ what a joy it is to come out early with a cup of tea and listen to the birds chirping happily as they are readying for their day! We have also enjoyed many meals out here with family and friends and I'm sure there will be many more over the course of the summer. Yesterday I spent the morning "sprucing" the porch up a bit. Everything had a nice green coat of pollen on it (yuck) so with a little bit of "elbow grease" it looks as good as new!
Here is a shot of my favorite chair. All I need is a cold drink a good book!
This is my dragonfly begonia. I love the unusual quality of it ~ I think it is so lovely. The only problem I am having with it is that my kitty cats love it, too! Grrr.... They love to take the blossoms off of it:o( When I go outside and see the blossoms off and then look at them they give me this "innocent" look that says "who me, I didn't do it. I think it was the dog!"
