~~Front Porch & Roses in Springtime!~




I am SO thrilled that Spring is here ~ I constantly have a smile on my face! Once again it's time to sit on the porch or out in the garden & enjoy the sunshine, a warm breeze, the singing birds, & a cup of coffee! It's finally warm in Texas & so nice to get out of the sweaters & put on shorts & flip-flops again. I am not a winter girl so I am happy happy to see it gone & to get back to the beauty of new spring life in every little plant, tree, & flower ~ I think they are smiling too! :-) This Katy Road rose bush is just across from my porch & is so full & pretty this year. We spent the entire afternoon of Earth Day working in the garden & have so many new projects that sometimes we don't make ourselves take time to sit & enjoy ~ so today I will take some time out in my day to do just that! After much needed rain & thunderstorms last night the sun is brilliant this morning ~ I'm on my way to snap some green beans on the porch & then pick a bouquet!

Hello! I've just discovered your blog! The beautiful photos of bluebonnets and paint brushes, brought back many happy memories of my childhood. My father was a Texan, my grandparents and great grandparents were too. I lived there several years as a child. When I didn't live in Texas, I spent many happy summers there.

Thanks so much for a beautiful Texas blog!!

No, no... it's I who am thrilled to find YOUR blog! Hi... I'm Brin from Messy, Thrilling Life. I appreciate your sweet comment on my blog earlier today. Thank you!

You know, it's funny... blogs must be slower to catch on in Texas or something. I rarely come across anyone from my home state! But regardless, I'm happy to meet you and pleased to see such great things here. (Your house... and roses!... are beautiful!)

I'll be back! Until then, have a great week...

I can´t imagine that your roses are blooming in April - unbelievably!
I know exactly what you mean with having so much procets that you never have time to enjoy your garden - it´s the same with me. But you have to take time for enjoying the garden - that´s for what we are working for :-)!

I love the photos of the Bluebonnets fields, although I don´t know them and also think that we don´t have them here in Austria!

Have a nice weekend with less work,
nice greetings, Verena

Kathy, I love your front porch. If the wind would ever stop blowing here in New Mexico, we'd be out on our porch too. I did plant some petunia/geranium pots and have them on the porch. It's also time to start painting my pillars. Ugh! :-)

Thank you for visiting. The porch is wonderful and you must make time to sit and smell the roses...dream a little and just enjoy the view you work so hard at.

You have the porch of my dreams! I'm glad winter is over, not that it was anything like a Northern winter. But I'm ready for everything to bloom. I've never heard of that rose, it's really beautiful!
