...porch views (#porchview on Instagram) and park views - it's time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!
Those front porch planters have been refreshed. I didn't end up with the "hot" colors I planned - instead I have muted pink and peach, gold and a hot green. It's been five days and the deer and rabbits haven't eaten anything. I'm thinking they must be still busy with the neighbors.
May is a great month for our screened porch. I cleaned it week before last (and then waited to see if the pollen was really done - it was) and Marc set out the sofa cushions on Friday. I've already enjoyed wine, coffee, knitting, podcasts*, reading, Marc's play by play rerun of Saturday night's fight ("enjoy" is a stretch for that one, but still, it was time shared in a lovely setting)...and a Sunday afternoon nap. The only thing I'm missing is a shared glass of wine with my sister.
Early morning walks in the park are even more delightful with the baby geese. We first spotted them a few weeks back - when I didn't have my
phone camera. I've carried it every walk since then, but it wasn't until Saturday morning that we saw the tribe. The babies are about twice as big now. I guess baby geese don't stay babies for very long. I snapped this photo on our first lap and we smiled on lap #2 when we saw other cameras out to capture the cuteness.
I think our Spring is way ahead of many of you, but I hope you're all getting outside now to enjoy a bit of Fresh Air!
*I highly recommend recent episodes from both Books on the Nightstand and Literary Disco that feature poetry. The BOTNS episode even includes a handout with samples and recommended poets for different types of poetry. I'm looking forward to exploring a bit...outside my own comfort zone.
