I used new better soil for the pots and decided to use only reds and whites and only a little blue for flower colors. Whites show up nicely in our little secluded spot and the reds ramp up the show effect. Mom used red and white petunia flowers at the farmhouse long ago and I've never found a way to improve on that.
Come for coffee soon on the patio.

Sometimes it feels to me that we have lost something precious in the way we visit or we don't as it seems. I'm not necessarily unhappy with our online communications ... I am quite grateful for it, in fact, with children spread all over the globe. And perhaps it is unfair to pin blame on any one thing, but I miss having drop-in company and being drop-in company. I miss having company other than family seated around a table set in china and crystal; serving a pretty meal.
I want to bring back some evening front porch visiting. Who is dropping in this evening for a patio visit? You'd be welcomed here. You might call ahead though, to make sure we are all at home.
