A pretty day to sit on the front porch

Most of the time, I find myself sitting out on the back
patio because of the welcoming morning sun.
But there are pretty winter days and afternoons
where the front porch is a haven.

The woods surround the viewing area from the side

and all around the front.  It is quiet and peaceful
A great place to read a book,  work a few stitches,
or to just sit in silence and enjoy.

On the front of the porch the Pyracantha
is full of orange/red berries

On the side of the porch, the Yaupon Holly is full 
of red berries. 

"Come sit on the porch with me
the drinks are cold and
the friendship's free"

I'd love to come and sit on the porch and have a lovely visit. It looks a lot warmer over there than here!

Your porch seating and views look so comfortable, Kathleen, and yes if we lived closer I would be joining you! We had several of those same bushes with the red berries at our former VA home.

Oh your front porch! I love it. And, hey we've got some of those 'pyra' things too and didn't know what it was. :)

Thank you for the invite! I'll bring some embroidery for you to help me with. It's a drawn thread embroidery that my mother had not finished. It would be fun to have a gathering with you!

A very nice porch. I like the red berries, especially now.

Your front porch looks very cozy and welcoming. It would be lovely to spend some time there.

I love your porch! Your yaupon holly is what I call nandina. I've also heard it called heavenly bamboo. Funny, huh?

There is always so much that is good to see and to do in this world. Thank you for sharing your bit of it!
