    Your porch with chairs and even an old swing looks SO inviting!

    Susan, Saratoga Springs has a big porch culture. People put reading lamps on their porches, have drinks out there. It’s a really nice thing.

    My 1916 house came with a porch. I love it. The neighbors walk by with their dogs or their children, say hello, comment on the garden. It’s so old fashioned and neighborly. Doesn’t a reading lamp attract bugs?

    I’ve been seeing that yellow euphorbia lately. Do you know it’s name. I need to find a place for some.

    It’s SO nice to see a circus sans elephants and tigers 🙂

    Wonderful! And they are performing just for you!

    Deidre, it’s just euphorbia polychroma, or cushion spurge. I love euphorbias, but most of them are not hardy where I live.

    I’ll jump in to tell you the yellow euphorbia is Euphorbia polychroma or cushion spurge.

    And I agree; what a gorgeous porch, house and neighbourhood.

    Hey Michelle,

    I like how you describe your yard.. “circle” is a good word to use 🙂

    I always feel that front yard decoration is an ART as your visitors will normally walk away with their first impression when visiting you. How you display your flowers, benches all need to be in line with your outdoor charm.

    I guess a cast iron glider will always be in style, or perhaps a wooden swing right next to your front door entrance.
