The sun is shining (most days), things are green (still), and it’s time to be outside doing things!! And doing things, we are! We had this nice patio furniture, left here by the previous owners, stored in our barn, so we decided to bring it out, clean it off, and give it a test drive on the porch.
I like the way it looks, and I like that all of the seats are “rockers”, which makes for a very relaxing time while sitting outside. The big tree in front of our house offers lots of shade during the hottest part of the day, so I can’t wait for it to warm up just a tad more, and I will be out here enjoying my porch, and the sights and sounds.
The Woodman went up to the other house and finally brought back my whisky barrel pots. He even surprised me and picked up a few 6-packs of flowers for me to freshen them up for the season! I loved that thoughtfulness. I will get the pots cleaned up, dead parts removed, and flowers planted soon!
He has also been busy setting up some new shelving in the basement for our canning supplies. There are a few boards still on the porch as evidence! I’m excited to think about how organized things will be in the basement soon!
The Woodman also brought in some flowers that were in our back yard flower bed/weed patch! They are so delicate and beautiful, and I absolutely love having cut flowers in the house. I was so delighted when he came in with the flowers, and I hadn’t even asked him to do it!!
There are a lot more projects to tackle as school is coming to an end, and summer is just around the corner. Stay tuned for more updates from our little mini farm, homestead, country home!
