Here in the Texas Gulf Coast we have citrus trees in the back yard, pools you can swim in from April through October and an almost 12-month growing season. What we don't have? Hills. Not.One.Hill.
If I did have a hill, and my house sat on said hill, I'd have a delicious porch/deck on the back like this one. It belongs to Susan at Between naps on the porch. You want to visit her blog. You really do. You'll learn something on Metamorphesis Monday and be enchanted by Tablescape Thursday, among other things. I feel like one of the cool kids when I hang out over there. You'll see what I mean.
This is a picture of the inside:
Don't you want to grab your book, your glass of wine and sit a spell? I hear crickets and kids playing in the distance. Far off, I hear the hum of a lawnmower, which always says "Summer's here!" to me. (Notice I said it was far off. Not in my yard!)
It's cool and rainy here in Texas. I'm ready for some nice days.
