We built our city house..because we were not quite ready to downsize into a condo. There are two outdoor spaces here, and they are small...and easy care.
I love my little morning porch, just off of the kitchen. It is on the front of the house, and the French doors let a lot of light into the kitchen.
It is very small, but a great place to share a morning coffee, and get some fresh air..I pictured this space on a previous blog.
We also have a side patio, which is a little larger, with an underground drip system to water the plants. I got my morning porch, and my husband got a fire pit; he really loves sitting around a fire. Are you wondering how we got the lawn so green so quickly.?
Well, it is artificial turf! Remember, I said the idea was easy care! Don't worry, we do have real grass out in the front yard. I think I am going to like this place. Now that I have found the SuperWalmart...I shall see what other stores I can find! Yipee Skipee!
The close up of our Blue Bonnet picture (see previous blog entry) was requested by Kate.Eloise, my cousin painted it. She was visiting us (years ago), and we had dinner at our golf club in Houston. My Tom showed her a large bluebonnet painting, that he loved, hanging in the dining room. Eloise took a picture of it...and the next year she brought Tom his own Bluebonnet painting. He treasures it.
We lost Eloise in 2007 at the age of eighty.
