“…the good ‘ol American front porch seems to stand for positivity and openness; a platform from which to welcome or wave farewell; a place where things of significance could happen.” Dan Stevens
The long awaited season of front porch living is under way! The white wicker furniture is set in place and the cushions are fluffed and plumped. White lights hang overhead to lend a warm glow to the cool evenings.
The days when I can take the time to linger on the front porch with a beverage and a book is a luxury. I settle myself in the wicker rocking chair, close my eyes, inhale the smell of spring and listen to the relaxing sounds of Red Wing.
The majestic magnolia tree that is rooted near the porch has produced an abundance of white flowers this season; the porch is the ideal place for breathing in the sweet fragrance of the many blossoms.
While relaxing on the porch, the sound of church bells and train whistles create a charming sense of nostalgia of a simpler time in this historic rivertown.
