A porch swing is a southern tradition. On beautiful spring days like we've been having now for weeks it is simply a delight to sit on the porch swing in the late afternoon and chat with neighbors who drop by, listen to the birds, enjoy a cool drink, or read a bit.
My swing needs a little TLC. Maybe I'll take it down this afternoon, repaint it, and replace the chains. Or maybe I'll just enjoy it one more day, and work on it tomorrow.
