Front porch rockers

Porch rockers

This front porch belongs to one of those early 1900's houses that I love. The porch is appealing, especially with the three matching rockers, sitting in a row. It looks so comfortable.

I remember sitting on the front porch in the evenings on my grandparents' farm in Missouri.  We'd enjoy the cooler evening temperatures. We'd wave to the occasional passers-by—every one of them!

But now it seems like neighborhoods are directed inward. People sit in the back yard. Even people that have front porches rarely use them. I've never seen anyone actually sitting in these three rockers, enjoying their front porch.

  1. Very comfy. (Yawn.) We have a side porch and sit out on it all summer long, watching our neighbors strolling past.
