Issue #75 March 2016

bunny in basket with milk jug filled with spring flowers for Easter March - St. Patrick's Day, first day of Spring (Mary's birthday), Easter, seed catalogs, and time to plan for the porch sitting months ahead.

Mary and I are looking forward to spring and warmer weather and being able to spend more time on our porch.

First on our agenda is give it a good cleaning and then start adding a few springtime decorations to celebrate the season.

Get Your Spring On...

The two of us enjoyed getting our porch ready for springtime. A few painted tulip pillow toppers and a welcoming tulip sign in between the rockers make for a cheery porch.

Did you notice the bunny? He's a new addition - a sweet anniversary gift from our friend and neighbor.

Weary of your porch getting dusty? Even though we all wish our porches would stay fresh looking and clean, they just don't.

They require vacuuming, sweeping, dusting and shining just like the inside of our homes. But your porch is so worth it.
