I always think of a veranda as a much grander affair than our two small porches are. Yet they are still pleasant enough for taking in the air, and covered enough to have a little protection for furniture. One can enjoy a gentle drizzle from beneath the eaves, but a real downpour would drive us indoors. A few cushions make it comfortable on the old wooden church pew for taking coffee in the morning or after a meal. Here, in seclusion, we are surrounded by birdsong, a few shade loving plants, and in the cool hours of the day we enjoy a bit of shuffling through the paper or a magazine. . . .
Today I've been enjoying the long awaited Romantic Prairie Style magazine out here. A cozy porch is perfect for reading about blogging friends, studying gorgeous photos, and just savoring a wonderful style. I'm so excited it's finally here! It's just jam packed gorgeousness!
Without a handy window ledge, the porch is a good place for rooting my Swedish Ivy.
So nice for you to hang out with me on my little veranda today!
Stop by any time!
