You will often find me enjoying the shade of our front porch in the summer!  It is my favorite spot to enjoy my morning cup of coffee before the kids wake up and find me :).  Our summer porch and gardens have definitely changed over the last 5 years since we moved into our farmhouse in the suburbs.

The climbing hydrangea has slowly been creeping up our front porch posts.  I was so happy to see it blooming.

I can hardly wait for it to cover the entire pergola in dark green leaves and white flowers.

I had to give our little porch a good wash and scrub for this garden tour.  It is amazing to me how much dust, dirt and cobwebs build up in a short period of time.

Jason’s parents recently surprised us with this beautiful antique milk can.  Although, they had it at their home in Colorado it is originally from a creamery in PA just 2 hours from where we live!

It is the perfect size and height to hold any coffee mugs or glasses of wine enjoyed on our summer porch.  I love how perfectly it fits next to our white rocking chairs.

Just off of our sunken brick patio we gave our fire pit a little refresh with a new pea gravel patio.

Down the hill, in our front yard we have kept ourselves busy by planting and weeding the vegetables in our raised beds.  Lettuce, anyone? 🙂

We also have to beat the birds every morning before they get to the strawberries.

Good thing my youngest is happy to go out and collect (or eat 😉 a few before his bus comes when he isn’t swinging on our new tire swing!

Our home orchard is also growing nicely with the hopes of harvesting apples, peaches, pears and blackberries this year.

DIY Wooden Arbor

When we decided to create our sunken brick patio one thing that I really wanted to add was a wooden arbor entrance from the garden.  Our wooden arbor does a wonderful job of making this outdoor space feel more like an outdoor room.   This wooden arbor was fairly simple to make and we made it using scrap wood from the deck that we took down and wood left over from creating our wood retaining wall. #arbor #gardenarbor #diy http://lehmanlane.net
