Oh Terri - it's all so beautiful. I can't imagine how stunning it must be when everything is green and growing.

I love the stone work, railing, skirt - all of it! I especially love the stone foundation.

All your porch decor/furniture is beautiful but I especially like the swing and the birds. The wind, sun, rain plaques too.

I will be up when the weather warms and spend the summer with you Green Grin! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks Vicki. I would love it if you came up this way to spend summer days with me Lovey dubby

I know you'll understand what I feel about the birds wall art. I purchased them for the conservatory, but I kept them in a box waiting to hang, for years actually, until I finally finished the cosmetic painting on the peaked section above the cased opening into the kitchen. Then on the morning before 200+ people were expected to arrive for Mike Wren's celebration of life memorial service, I felt an overwhelming need to find that box and hang those birds on the porch. There were so many last minute things to take care of, but that is what I irrationally spent my time doing. I cried while I was hanging them, and they will forever remind me of his spirit soaring to the heavens. I bought this plaque about a month ago on what would have been his birthday and will hang it on the porch too.
