Farm House, Crowell’s Cross Road, Halifax County, North Carolina, between 1935 and 1938, by Frances Benjamin Johnston, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
Still, as I went about my potting on a glorious afternoon, one small treasure after another, the world of nature that is so terrible and so beautiful appeared only in its sweetest aspect.

4 thoughts on “The Sunday porch: the collector”
Having lived in a log house in the mountains of Western NC, I can relate to this house and porch. Lots of peas got shucked.
On this porch, there would be no place to sit and work — except the steps. Thanks for stopping by.
Makes me think of all those pots outside the dentist’s office that I recently posted and Henry Mitchell always nails it!
He is still the best.
