Front Porch Gossip

The front porch has made a resurgence with newer built homes. They had become a thing of the past for many years as people gravitated to their backyards. Now days, they come stocked with liveable outdoor furniture and garden adornments. Here's a snapshot of mine taken by my visiting mom today. I've mixed kitchen herbs such as thyme, rosemary, and variegated peppermint amongst the potted flowers. The bistro set was a bargain at Walmart.

Pull up a chair
Order a tall glass of iced tea
Relax and sit a spell
Conversations abound
Home is where I want to be
