Our Front Porch

This Porch and Patio Party was the wonderful idea of Barb over at Grits and Glamour. http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/2009/05/porch-and-patio-party.html Please visit her to see some beautiful porches and patios.

Welcome to our front porch. One of our babies is waiting by the front door to welcome you. Oops, you can see my reflection in the glass as I take the photo. I am experimenting with photo programs and I used a cartoon effect for the above picture.

His and hers rocking chairs. My husband and I love to sit out here. We do get afternoon sun, so pretty soon we will only be sitting out here in the mornings. It's nice to sit with a cup of coffee and watch whatever (or whoever) is passing by!
View from the rockers. Another view from the rockers.
Magnolia tree.
Thanks so much for visiting. I'll be working on the back porch next. Have a wonderful Porch and Patio day.

  1. Lovely! Love the bunny :-) and black rockers (I have those too). Thanks for sharing. I wish my porch was brick!

  2. I love the black rockers. I had even thought about painting mine black, too. In the end, the thoughts of actually having to do it convinced me they were okay white. LOL I love the topiary form in the petunia pot. I am crazy for tope forms. What a lovely space to spend a morning - and oh my! Love your magnolia tree - just love it! Thanks so much for sharing in today's Party. Blessings, Barb

  14. I'm very envious of your sago palm! Your porch looks great and so does your view of the lush landscaping.
