It’s 31 degrees here in Mississippi. That’s cold by anyone’s standards. And while perhaps, you porch folk in Maine and Wisconsin are covered up in snow, what do you do on a front porch when it’s cold besides drink a cup of hot tea or coffee?
Well, this morning, I find myself dreaming about what I want to add to my porch come springtime, and while visiting my favorite online site, Pinterest, I ran across this image of a container water garden.
Ah, magical! And off my imagination went, thinking of where and what I would add: fish? horsetail reeds? a fountain?
And then my feet started to numb and I thought perhaps my first project should be a quilt or porch socks. So, I’m back inside now, but with ideas beginning to dance in my head. And perhaps that is part of the purpose of the winter porch: to muse and dream and plan for spring.
