Wow your out of focus edges with the crisp centers are really beautiful shots of leaves and things. Our tomatoes are getting tall but I never seem to find any fruit on them? W.C.C.

Lovely! I just love all of your special relaxing! I hope you're enjoying your summer. It's been a while since I've visited the Back Porch!


Your header is fantastic. The pictures of your "corners" just take my breath! I am working on clearing our calendar for the 30th. Where did you get the slip covers for your dining room chairs? I need some for two antique chairs that I have in my living room.

I love your corner retreat - you know I would so be there with a good book! And your porch - sigh ... And the first tomato! yay!!! (I think next week for me. They're turning a little red.) And I just noticed the header - sheer gorgeousness. Outstanding! How are you liking the new camera?

Pat, I am so glad to see you at Favorite Things Saturday. And what beautiful corners to post for FTS! We really aren't THAT far away from each other. Why don't you come decorate my house. I really want those slipcovers on my chairs, and I love that comfortable looking chair with the wonderful pillow. I wish we lived close enough that I could come steal your tomatoes! My vine has only produced one tiny tomato, and the squirrels got it before me! Thank you so much for linking to FTS! Have a great weekend. laurie

Hi Pat, this is Debra from Common Ground Glad you found The Seed Box Shop Blog. Mel and Brian help me put together the posts, but then they have asked me to do the blog, they read all the comments though. I wanted to let you know that they don't have a shop any longer, just hold semi annual open house sales at their great country house in Chadwick. But there is still an antiques shop in the same location, right behind Lamberts in the shopping center. The gals that rented space with Brian and Meloney decided to stay when the Seed Box became too busy with shows to keep a brick and mortar store going. It's name is "Leolas" and there are about 12 really wonderful dealers there. Very similar to the Seed Box store, with a lot of variety. I used to be there until last year when I had to leave due to some health problems. (I'm at Spring Creek Tea Room and Antiques on 3rd Street, now; Another wonderful place.)
Just wanted to let you know, we appreciate you and your support!
If you'd like to be on their mailing list for their open houses, just send me your address, I'll make sure they get you on the list. (They're fabulous and fun!)
Sorry this is so long, I was set to email you, but you have "no reply".
Hope you're having a great summer!

You are a red tomato ahead of us. We only have green ones. Can't wait. I love a comfy chair in a corner - yours is so peaceful. Sally

You have lovely corners, :). Everything looks so calming! I am frazzled from all the company!
And cooking, and cleaning! But it comes with summer and living at the beach. In winter no one knows us! :)
I bought a new camera. Canon Rebel T1l. I am nowhere near your skills.I have a lot of learning to do!
Have a great weekend, Pat!

Pat, your photos are so sharp and clear, whether of a corner nook in a room, or of a tomato ripening on the vine.
