We chose two shades of brown, and a bit of dark green (which doesn't show in the sun) under the eaves for our new home because I wanted it to blend into the woods behind. Rather a contrast with the blue sky, though.

The oak rocker across the table belonged to my great-grandmother and probably dates from the early part of the 20th century. It's very comfortable.
My grandmother, her daughter, used red poppy material many years ago to cover pillows for it. Grandma also made a dress and apron from that material.
And this little stadium seat we found in a shop in Denver. It's like the ones you see in old photos of men in white suits and Panama hats and ladies in white linen dresses at outdoor family reunions in the 1920s, vigorously fanning their faces and looking uncomfortable. Harry didn't find it comfortable either and soon departed.
Our neighbors brought this large purple chrysanthemum as a house warming gift. Geordie posed patiently while I searched out my camera. Once his photo was entered for posterity, he booked for a night of hunting.
Our porch light was once an old railroad station light, found at an antique show in Denver.
So, come on in.
