Front Porch, Back Porch
First photo is looking out on the front yard from our screened in front porch. It's been pleasantly cool the past week or so. Probably the last of the cool air before summers heat kicks in.
The second photo is one step out of our back door onto the patio.
Good or bad, I like to take a few pics around the house and yard from time to time. Plants grow, die, or are blown down in hurricanes, so while I was sitting there I thought it time to take a couple more because things change. I don't think I've ever taken any from the perspective of sitting on the front porch looking out at the yard. That's one of our little poodles, Angel, who jumps up on the ledge looking for lizards. She loves to chase them. You can see we have palm trees all over the front so it feels like you're sitting in a secret, shaded place.
I went and took one of our back patio and pool area since we've finally got it fairly clean and Lovely Wife has planted some flowers. To the left is actually a table with a ceiling fan and light, though it's not in the picture. When Sainted Mother visits, she pretty much lives out here on the back patio.
We bought this house in 1997 from a retired couple who had added most everything folks eventually like to add to a house. Screened in front porch. Covered back patio with small pool and a screened enclosure encasing it all.
It's a pleasure to sit on either side of the house, and is almost bug free due to the screened areas. We're blessed.
