FRONT PORCH CHANGES
j plans to resurface the front porch floor and add a bench between the gold flame spirea and holly, at the corner of the garage.
I “BORROWED” THE IRON CHAIR FROM THE MASTER BATHROOM AND RECOVERED THE SEAT WITH BURLAP, BEFORE SETTING IT IN ONE CORNER OF THE PORCH.
THE FLAG PILLOW WAS IN A BAG OF PILLOWS, BROUGHT FROM THE CONDO. I THOUGHT IT THE PERFECT ADDITION FOR MEMORIAL DAY.
CHERUB STAND HOLDS A POT OF IVY, IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER OF THE PORCH.
a glance toward the side garden, where the white wave petunias are beginning to fill in the shells of the fountain, turned planter.
AN ESPECIALLY MEANINGFUL COMMENT
OVER THE WEEKEND, J AND I VISITED A LOCAL CEMETERY, WHERE I TOOK SEVERAL PHOTOS OF THE “AVENUE OF FLAGS”. I PUBLISHED A POST, USING THESE PHOTOS.
A QUOTE AT THE TOP OF THAT POST, ILLUSTRATES MEMORIAL DAY.
THE HOLIDAY MARKS THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER, EVEN THOUGH THE ACTUAL SEASON CHANGE IS IN JUNE.
IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO REMEMBER THE ORIGINAL REASON FOR MEMORIAL DAY.
A FRIEND FROM MY OLD HOMETOWN ASKED IF I WOULD CARE IF SHE SHARED A LINK TO BACK PORCH MUSINGS, WITH A FRIEND; OF COURSE, I TOLD HER I WOULD LOVE FOR HER TO SHARE THE LINK.
IMAGINE HOW DELIGHTED I WAS TO RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING COMMENT, FROM HER FRIEND.
You have some great pictures of the cemetery! I am away in Iraq for Memorial Day this year, but it felt like I was right there in my hometown visiting my grandfather's grave. Thank you! I will be sure to link to you on my site.
PS. Mrs. Calton is a family friend, and told me about your blog!
While this post features vignettes that have nothing to do with tabletops, i am pretending it does and adding the link to Marty’s.
