Homie loves sitting out here.
Its a great spot to eat too.
Yes...its a big bowl of cereal with strawberries. And I ate it all!
This little screened porch is in the trees. It feels so nice when a breeze is blowing. I tried to keep accessories and furniture to a minimum because the porch is not too big and I like the focus to be on the natural beauty.
See what I mean about the trees?
The house is on a big hill. The banks are steep and covered with ivy.
This hardy hibiscus is coming along great.
The nandina is really nice on the side of the porch and the hostas always put on a big show with large leaves and flowers.
Look at the nandina flowers. It's an evergreen and produces clusters of bright red berries in fall and winter. Some call it invasive but mine is well behaved and I call it beautiful!
Oh look...a Gerbera daisy is coming back. Last year I planted three around the lamp post as annuals. I was jumping up and down when I saw it this spring. I didn't expect it to be a perennial in zone 7B.
This is a perennial bed to the left of the porch. It was grass but not any more.
A reflection of the porch and gravel path.
Stella de oro daylilies waking up.
Lookie here...a columbine volunteer.
This is another shot of the perennial bed. Not much blooming yet. Wait till next month though! There's knock-out roses, garden phlox, blanket flowers, yarrow, russian sage and coral bells. I like it much better than grass/weeds.
We can go back in this really old porch door. I think it is sweet.
The mondo fern is trying to fill out. I said trying...
Looking out to my white bank garden. There's a white rose bush, white gaura, white shasta daisies, white mums, white salvia, lily of the valley and hostas in this area. It will explode in a few weeks with all white blooms.
Thank you so much for visiting my porch. I thank God for blessing me with all of this beauty that I enjoy every day.
