Morning Coffee

Won't you grab a cup of coffee and join me?

I've even saved a seat for you.
Even Chloe will agree that the view is not bad.
Our little row of grapevines are out here,
a few pretty flowers,

and this morning the nest was empty.

Several years ago we covered our small back patio with a tin roof.  Our goal is to make our rather large back yard beautiful without spending a lot of money, and little by little it is happening.  I have taken cuttings from neighbors plants and bought some on clearance. When the weather is a little cooler we will begin working on some vegetable beds.Some mornings you can even catch a breeze on the back porch here in south Georgia. It's simple, but I'm loving it.

Simply beautiful!!! I would love to have morning coffee in such a peaceful place! :)

Oh I think it would be lovely to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with you in that backyard. Everything looks lovely. We are just getting started with our new back patio but we are already enjoying it. I love the vines:)

You really do take nice photos - and so good to see the nest is empty:)

I had no idea you lived in south Georgia...I live just up the road in middle Georgia! We should get together some time! I managed to sit outside on the patio for a few minutes on Sunday, but for the most part these days it is inside in the a/c!!

Thanks for inviting us in!

Have a great Friday.

That's where I'd be, sipping my coffee. Absolutely wonderful.
I bet you are out there as much as you can be. Beautiful!

Beautiful!!!! I hope you have a great weekend. Did I mention we are trying to make plans to come to your great state?

OK, I'm looking at the date-yesterday--and the word "cooler!" Maybe in south Ga., but not in SC!! It was 99 in the shade, girl! Icky running weather! I'll just come on down and visit with you and Chloe in the shade of your beautiful backyard! May I have sweet tea though?

Love your outdoor space. It truly looks like the perfect place to just sit and enjoy.

Beautiful picture Jackie. What a delightful place to enjoy a cup of coffee.

Love the grapevines. Reminds me of my childhood.
