On the Porch

Mike asked me recently what I wanted this farmer's porch to look like. And I found I couldn't give him a very descriptive answer. In fact, he had no clue what I was talking about. So I dug up this picture on the net:
Believe it or not, this house is actually in my town. Down by the library, the picture-taker told me. (Picture-taker... yeah, how about photographer, jess?) I wish I had a current pic of my actual house to compare it to.... then again, it would put my house to shame.

THIS is pretty damn near to what I want ours to look like. The white with green, the farmer's porch, the super-nice grass... *sigh*

But you can see what I was trying to explain to Mike on the porch - he said, "What do you want it to look like?" and I said, "Like a fence! You know, with posts..." And he said, "Oh, columns?" So, you can see how circularly confusing that conversation was.

But this is a great pic, because this house is the same exact style as ours, except for the mudroom jutting out the right hand side... that will be tough with the porch roof line.

Are you going to put those giant flower pots on your porch too? They look so huge, like they are blocking all the light!

I don't know about that. I'd rather just have window boxes, to be honest with you. =)
