I wanted to greet you at my front gate, so we could stroll through my courtyard and enjoy the view before heading to my porch. Please click on any picture to enlarge for detail.
All of my roses and lavender are in bloom. Can you smell their sweet scent?
I will have to have you back for dinner al fresco some night. We can even light a fire in the fireplace, because evenings are always cool in the mountains.
We are almost there. Now, I don't have a "porch" so I am really having a deck party.
I love the way the sun filters through the deck railings across these vintage watering cans.
Here we are. There are seats in the sun and in the shade. Take your pick!
After I show you around, I will run inside and get some refreshments. When I do, you might want to browse through this beautiful book.
I made some mosaic coasters for my porch this year. Look closely. The bases are clay saucers, white washed.
Remember the planter I painted a few posts back? Here it is.
