Is Summer Winding Down?
Issue #94 August 2018
Who loves sunflowers?Dave and I tried our hand at growing sunflowers this summer. We sure wish that ours were this pretty.
Do you have beautiful golden sunflowers growing in your garden?
Here where we live, our grandchildren have been in school for two weeks already. Yes, two weeks and it's only the middle of August.
So from that perspective, summer is winding down here in Middle Tennessee. We still have plenty of warm days left though. Things are different than when we went to school - where the school year started after Labor Day.
How about for you? Is summer vacation still in full swing where you live? Our grandchildren who live in Virginia are still enjoying their summer break.
What's In This Issue
What a Difference a Porch MakesIf you ever wondered what a difference a porch makes to a home, take a moment to see these before and after photos of Billie's home and then of Sandy's home. Both of them were kind enough to share their photos with us.
Please take a look to see how a porch sky rocketed their home's warmth and welcoming feel.
Billie's Porch Addition on Her Ranch Home
Before the porch additionBillie's long ranch home was plain and simple before the porch was added. They took a good long while to come up with their porch design.
With only a stoop and minimal landscaping, her home was missing some curb appeal.
After the porch additionWhat a difference a porch makes to Billie's home. Such a delicious update to her home. A welcoming craftsman style porch and gorgeous landscaping give her home an irresistible quality.
While not extravagant or over the top, Billie's porch makes an enviable difference to her home.
Sandy's Cape Cod Home Gets a Beautiful Porch

After the porch addition
The adorable landscaping done after the porch additionThis updated fresh landscaping is much more light and lovely than the heavy dense shrubbery she had earlier.
Sandy loves her home so much more with her front porch. And such personality her home gained with this curb appealing front porch too.
Who can doubt the difference a porch makes!
