Too hot for outside...

Today we'd better stay on the porch
sipping some cool iced lemonade.
But from here we can see some
pretty little garden scenes.

Just yesterday on a trip into town,
MIL and I stopped in W-Mart and I
headed for the spray paint section.
Inspired by this pic and also by the
great redo that Kathy over at
Sweet Up-North Mornings
made...posted July 5th on her blog.

If I get to it this week will post as my
Met Monday project. For those new to this meme,
they are before and after projects. So if you
have one consider joining the fun at
Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.

I am a fan of rust. Love the time weathered
look of anything old.

Stay cool as you do your walk-about
viewing other
Hosted by another lovely Susan
who is A Southern Daydreamer.

Candy, I love the bike with the vines. I like old rusty things too. I have an old gate that was rusty and I painted it white. Now I could kick myself, as I really liked the old look better. Happy Outdoor Wednesday. Stop by and say hi. Country Hugs, Sherry

Your porch just says home. The touches you've added to your landscape tell us how important it is to you. I loved your photos.
