I’m afraid I have a bad cold, so today’s porch is a repeat from August 2012.

hope you feel better soon, C.
Oh, me too. I have been coughing since we got back from Istanbul. Next plane trip I will get out the Purell more often.
And I hope you and your family (feathery members included) are staying warm and well this week!
I love this!! How wonderful to imagine having so many quilts –and such an awesome house!
The sandy (?) yard is interesting. I looked up Coffee County and it’s in the south of the state, near the Florida panhandle — disappointingly named for a general, not the blessed drink.
I like all the cans — I guess all her plant cuttings — lined up along the porch.
Ugh…you and me both…what a way to start the new year! I’ve been doing some handstitching snuggled under a quilt!
I hope you feel better. I finally mostly stopped coughing today.
