Porch sittin weather!

Only in MI can you go from 30 degree weather one Sunday to to 80 degree weather the following Sunday.
Over the weekend, we took some time to get the patio furniture out of storage, scrub down the deck, add new light bulbs to my estate sale lanterns and purchase a few pansies.
We've still got all kinds of spring cleaning to do in the yard.    

 Welcome warm weather, you've been missed!

XOXO

Similar temp range in Nebraska! Not quite ready for 80s -- would like to have 2-3 months of 75 and sunny with low humidity. Am putting in my weather order now -- what would you like? :)

Your swan is so cute! Wonder if they make those anymore, or I suppose I'll run across one at an estate sale sooner or later! Glad your weather is getting nicer!

Hi, Kim! We have those temperature swings here, too! Now our high temps have been in the low eighties this week! I'm glad you took some time to enjoy the beauty of the week-end. xo Nellie

Happy spring days Kim . . .
I agree . . . It was 22 degrees on a Monday, 78 on Friday . . . one week ago . . .
Big change indeed . . . cooler days this week. Probably more spring like . . .
I'd like some spring, not immediate Sumner!

You can go from 30 to 80 degrees in one day in my hometown of Pittsburgh!

Your lights are too cute! We went from 80 back to 50, but we're supposed to be warming up again. I would like some actual spring before those summer temps hit us. Fab pansy display!

I took the day a couple of weeks ago and did all the same prep work for our patios. It's nice to have an early start! Loving that swan planter!

SO glad you finally got some spring weather. Looks like a nice porch to while away a few minutes. Love the umbrella and new/old lanterns, Cute!
