Porch Ponderings

It's been kind of cool and rainy the past couple of days here in New England but I'm not complaining at all, mind you - just stating a fact! A week ago we were having record-breaking temperatures hovering near the century mark on the thermometer - way too hot for June in my own humble opinion! - but since Saturday evening we've had rain and temperatures barely getting out of the 60's.

Personally, I don't mind the cooler weather at all (though I could do without so much rain if we're being honest!) but I think that the plants on my porch are getting somewhat confused with this constant change of temperatures! Still, they seem to be thriving and blossoming quite nicely so I thought I'd share a picture or two with you that I took recently.

My front porch looks to be a lovely place even though I can't boast of any anything fancier than a glider swing that my son gave me as a Mother's Day gift years ago, doesn't it? I'm hoping the weather warms up enough that I can go out and sit on said glider swing but doesn't get so hot that the porch is the last place I want to be! A little nicer weather is all I ask. Well, that and it might be nice to have someone to share that swing with but then I guess that would definitely be asking for too much! For now, I'll just take the nicer weather!

  1. Your flowers are beautiful, Duchess Linda. And the porch looks most inviting.
    Some of the perennials in our front yard have blossomed. I'll have to take some pix.
    I still didn't buy any marigolds for my marigold spot. Soon.

  11. How about margaritas? I don't need no sweet tea. ;)

    I'm jealous though-I can't grow anything. I've managed to already kill my mint. :(

  14. I had those flowers few years before but now I can't take care them and they died. Only for my shortage of time.

  15. Your porch looks wonderful and relaxing. And I do want sweet tea. Connecticut has "raspberry tea" and no sweet tea. What is up with that??
