Show and Tell: Front porch
Here's mine. Not much to tell. Wait ... yes there is. On the front verandah we have a watering can, a shoe rack, a twig broom, and a cat. Botanically speaking there are two cumquat trees, one on either side of the front step. Heritage apricot climbing roses adorn the two verandah posts (Crepuscule, and Buff Beauty).
We bought the house 10 years ago. The front verandah was concrete. We replaced it with wood, as it would have been originally. The house is about 100 years old.
See the cumquats!
See the blue sky! (See the rusty red roof!) It is a beautiful winter's day here today. See the rose, blooming in JUNE!? (Crepuscule, 1904 noisette climbing rose)
An elderly cat called Meg lives on our front verandah. She used to live in the house, then we got a greyhound and she retired to the verandah. The patriarch found her an old cane chair in a dumpster and the children made her cushions to recline on. She is enjoying her retirement. (The rear cushion has the words "Meggie Moo" embroidered on it).
Her best friend these days is the watering can. She is not very bright.
