Friday Photo - Screened Porch

The screened porch at the cottage is in constant use - the perfect place to read, eat dinner, have tea, and hang out.  I took this photo early on Victoria Day morning when the lake was still misty, and the soft early morning light filtered through the trees and into the screened porch.

Sigh - perfection!

p.s.  There is still one more day to enter my Cottage Charm giveaway.


  1. Good morning Grace ~ That porch certainly looks like a peaceful place to do the things you said. Enjoy.

    I almost forgot about the lovely give-away of yours. Whoever wins is going to love your gifts. It would be nice to be the winner, time will tell.

    Have a lovely weekend ~ FlowerLady

  2. What a beautiful spot. Screened porches are just the best especially when they overlook that kind of scenery!

  3. Hi Grace

    This picture says it all to me about why i love Northern Ontario! I could sit here all day and what a great place to start off the morning with a coffee or end the day with a cup of tea!!
    The screen helps with the bugs too!

    Have a great weekend Grace!

  4. Lovely! Reminds me of my cabin view (mountains though - no lake). I have half walls though - the screen to the floor sure would brighten up my space *hmmm*....

  5. You just look at that photo and breathe more easily - bliss.
    Enjoy your long weekend!

  6. The house where I grew up in Louisville had a screened porch, it was totally awesome and I would love to have one now. Around Chicago, it could be used for maybe 3 months, if we're lucky! Guess we will just have to find a cottage but, I want a view of the Atlantic Ocean. ;)

  7. It looks divine, I can see why you love it! It is more than a picture it is a state of mind!

  8. I was always fascinated with windows and views like this; this photo is beautiful and it reminds me of a painting by Edward Hopper with a view like this.

  9. You really live somewhere special Grace. hank you for joining in my giveaway and for putting up the button.
    Good luck with the draw

  10. What a perfect place to escape and have a nice cup of coffee in the morning. My ideal!
