A Welcoming Front Porch

with A Cottage Style Garden

A Welcoming Front Porch

On this Fourth of July, I want to especially introduce you to my dearest friends, Mary and Dave Morris. On behalf of many Americans, I give thanks to the men and women like Dave Morris, a 20-year military veteran who served and sacrificed for this country I now live in.

Mary and Dave have journeyed with me in life since 2006; they were my anchor and support when I was going through a rough time, but also celebrated great achievements and special moments with me. Their hospitality is an extension of their love and who they are as people. It is only fitting to me that their awesome front porch is inviting and welcoming and speaks volumes of their hospitality to others around them and those who come to visit. The cottage style garden in front of their beautiful front porch welcomes guests and family with vibrant colors and aromatic scents from mixed herbs with the perennial and annual plants and flowers.

Not only does the garden keeps evolving and changing throughout the different seasons, the hard working garden also tries to keep up with Mary as she constantly decorates the front porch with her artistic paintings and hand-crafted seasonal decor.

A garden regardless of its size, adds joy and happiness to anyone but it is even better when it is shared with a loved one and guests. Together, Mary and Dave created Front-Porch-Ideas-and-More website to share their passion and experiences with others. Their labor of love is planted with each flower blooming in their garden ,not only for them, but for others to enjoy. Please meet Mary and Dave as they show us their lovely front porch and cottage garden on the video below.
