The porch.

The back, screened-in porch, that is. We actually have two porches, the wide, welcoming front one, and the tucked-away back one. While I love the openness of the front porch --- nothing says "Come in!" in like a one-step-up, as-long-as-the-house kind of porch --- the Southern situation of 808 Bolling means we get a lot more use out of the screened-in porch off the kitchen.

Also, one cannot wear pajamas on a front porch for all of Belmont to see.

This is my favorite spot. I can curl up and take a nap here. Also good for latte-drinking.

Belle gave me this for my birthday. C'est charement, n'est pas?

I keep my watering can by the door, so I can easily pick it up on my way out to the garden. (By the way, I told my beau today, "I must get my seedlings grown up by the first frost." I felt very much like a pioneer prairie girl.)


  1. Love.

    You have a great eye for your photos. They go well with your prose. I love the fabric on the latte-drinking spot.

  2. It is one of my favorite places as well. Your back porch makes me feel like I am way out in the country and your front porch reminds me how urban you are...yin and yang!
