And my porch’s new look has come in very handy as a backdrop for shooting pictures of outdoor entertaining pieces I am including in the presentation for the Flower and Garden Show. I have tried taking pictures on our open deck and found the weather challenging, if not darn right uncooperative. One morning was clear but the wood deck was doubling as a skating rink. Today we woke up to find it covered in fir needles and debris from a wind storm.
So yippee, for that nice, covered porch! -- Beth
