Welcome to the Porch Swing!

Everyone is welcome to join us on the Porch Swing a thread where we talk about cooking, books, pets, birthdays, TV, the area where we live, anything that won't fit into the regular daylily forum. The subject is always changing.

Don't worry about reading all of the thread, just jump right in. We're sure you'll enjoy visiting with us.

We have many threads covering a wide variety of information on the topic of Daylilies. The Daylily Forum has two threads for off topic discussion - Weather In Your Garden for weather related chat and The Porch Swing for all non-daylily messages and chat.

When a new Porch Swing thread is posted, the old Porch Swing threads will be left up for a few days, then periodically deleted, so be sure to copy any items out of the old thread that you want to keep when you see a new thread is up.

* All other off topic threads will be relocated to the appropriate Forum. If you inadvertently post an off topic thread to the forum, please let us know and we'll move it into its proper place, and if we see it before you do, we'll let you know by Tree-mail that we moved it.*

I guess I am glad that it is officially summer so when there is sweltering heat at least that is what's supposed to be.

I think today I will cut back more bloomed out rose branches. Sad to see it ending.

Thank you Linda!

Yesterday I had him right at noon with the light shade directly above the little guy but before I could get my camera up and on he had headed on to wherever he was going.

The tree removal service is here today, they are working on a huge spruce tree and trimmed the top our sunset locust that got damaged in a storm. Tomorrow they will be taking down a very large maple tree and trimming a few branches from our birch that are overhanging a bit of the garage roof. They will do complete cleanup and stump grinding. Then we will have to seed grass in the what will be bare ground. Very interesting to watch professionals doing their job using a boom truck, the guy in the bucket really knows how to handle everything.

I've had several people do tree work for me and none of them used a cherry-picker - they all just climbed into the trees and went to work. I was really impressed.

I came to the porch swing this morning mostly because the moment is just so very peaceful. Me doing one of my favorite things, enjoying my first coffee of the day and watching my wife doing one of her favorite things, feeding our ten-month-old grandson who is about the cutest being on the planet. (Sorry, but I don't have a recent close-up of him, a problem I shall remedy immediately!)

It's amazing how hard it is to get a still photo of a 10-month-old who has just recently discovered his mobility and is enjoying it to the fullest!
