My Porch Garden

It has now been over a year since we sold our home and garden. That’s hard to believe, but time does, indeed, go fast. We have decorated our new apartment with greenery and have given special attention to our screened porch.

With the coming of spring and the delightful warm weather, we selected a new crop of annuals for the porch.

The porch is small but I am feeling comfortable surrounded by colorful plants. Why it’s almost time to turn on the music and pour the wine.
