I have decks, not a porch and not a veranda. Porches or verandas sounds much more romantic don't they?
I think to be a porch (or a veranda) you need a roof. I wish we had a roof over our decks so we could sit outside on warm rainy summer days or be shaded on the very hot sunny ones. I've often wondered if a roof could be put over our front deck but I don't know if it would suit the house. I've always dreamed of a house with a veranda across the front....
Anyhoo.....Here we are on the front deck in the morning. You need to get out there between 8:30 and 10:00 to catch the sun but you may be quite chilly on these mornings.
I placed a woolen throw from Cottage Craft Woolens in St. Andrews on the chair for you
to wrap around your legs or shoulders.
You probably need shoes, socks, long pants and a sweater too. Be prepared.
I prefer my tea black and love this Rose Chintz mug which plays on the colours
in the wool throw.
I think this angel is kissing summer good bye don't you? I love the purple of this fall aster.
It is a perennial that I can put in the ground. I just need to find a spot for it.
Pretty Indian corn and yellow mums ~ fall colours.
I had to throw out the impatiens that were in this old pot as they were looking
pretty sad so I replaced them with some hardy pansies.
I hope you can still enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on your deck or porch.
I don't want summer to leave so I try to sit out on the back deck (which has the most sun)
for a few minutes each day the sun is shining ~ drinking in the vitamin D along with my tea.
Today I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for
Tea Time Tuesday
Wishing you many more sunny deck/porch/veranda days to come.
