Summer Porches



                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                      This past week I was out for a drive and
                                                      pasted by this charming porch that I have
                                                      often admired.  The owner was out in
                                                      the garden and gave me permission to come
                                                     and photograph both her front (above) and
                                                      back porch. Thank you!
                                                            I love wicker furniture and this
                                                            has been collected over time at
                                                            auctions etc.
                                                         
                                                               The back porch is new and I love
                                                               the summery colors.

                                                               Love the pop of red on the
                                                               door too.
The lovely owner of the summer porches
above,also has a blog~ Menopausal New Mom
if you would like to pop in for a visit.

                                                      This colorful porch is from The Orient Hotel
                                                      in Victoria by the Sea!

                                                               Love  this charming summer porch too.
                                                     
                                                                  Elegant Charlottetown porch.

                                                            What a beautiful flower filled porch
                                                           on a shop in Victoria by the Sea also.


                                                           And back home to our own summer porch.
A peek inside.

                                                    Hope you are enjoying some time
                                                              on a summer porch!

                                                              If you would like to enjoy

                                                                     I mentioned on my previous post
                                                                   about my Garden Tea on August 9
                                                                   and I have to tell you the morning
                                                                   sitting is all sold out and the afternoon
                                                                   2:30 is quickly filling up so if you are
                                                                    interested......no time to waste!

                                                                   Thank you everyone for your quick
                                                                   response and positive comments!

I love the beautiful porches and so much color. We have two, one in the front and one in the back. Sad to say we have not spent much time on them since we have spent most of the summer remodeling our kitchen.

Carolyn, these porch pics are dreamy...and my very favorite is YOURS. I want to grab a book and hang out on that porch bed all day and listen to the birds.

Pure heaven of loveliness.

Olá Carolyn,

Você enche meus olhos com fotos maravilhosas. O verão na ilha é fantástico. Como gostaria de ir a seu chá, quem sabe um dia retorno.

Aproveite cada minuto.

Felicidades sempre.

It's sad that front porches are rare to find these days on new homes because people have taken to sitting on decks in the backyard instead.
I would love to have a front porch to enjoy the goings on that happen on the street and sidewalk.

They are all so pretty!

What a lovely treat first thing in the morning to see these gorgeous porches. We're planning a front porch for our new cottage and I can hardly wait. Your porch is fabulous, Carolyn. Like a dream. Thanks for sharing. ~ Nancy @ A Joyful Cottage
