From My Front Porch

   Hi Folks!  I am challenging myself to do a wee bit better with updating. I know, I know, I have said this before but I am really going to try!  One of the thoughts that I had was to take a picture or two from my front porch of my view at the beginning of each month. I was talking to about this idea from a sweet and honest friend of mine and she thought that this was an interesting/good idea also. 

This particular photo is taken from directly in front of our front door. The Black-Eyed Susans are starting to fade already for the year.  I love those happy flowers.  These start to bloom as soon as the daisies are finishing. They are the little splashes of color along the road.

This angle is from the end of the porch towards our garage.  This photo shows our barn and a pine tree that my dad cut the branches off.  The tree has been struck by lightening so many times.  It is a home to several different birds and ants!

I couldn't resist the sky photo.  You can see the heavy cloud cover coming in on the right side of the photo.  I was busy in the kitchen all morning and didn't have a good chance to get a sunny picture. I was finally able to capture a shot with some sun. 
This is a picture of our home.  I thought you may want to see where I will be when I am taking my pictures!  This isn't the best photo I have but it was all I could find while trying to post this.  :-) 



  1. Beautiful flowering bushes!! I LOVE your front porch. I sure do miss having a front porch. Sigh. What a lovely vista you have from every angle. Awesome!

    1. Thank you! It is an older picture from this spring when the rhododendrons were blooming.
