The Annual Porch Big Clean

The back porch was what really sold me on this house.  Doesn't every one want a big porch?  Well, be carefull what you wish for, a porch is some serious high maintenance.

High maintenance but truly worth the effort.

Every year in April I pull all my porch furnishings into giant piles and cover them over with sheets while the pollen rains down.  Then after about 3 weeks the pollen slacks off and it's time for the big clean.

All the furniture/stuff gets hauled out to the yard and hosed/scrubbed off.

Big porch = lots of stuff.

Next comes a lot of sweeping, vacuuming, mopping and scrubbing with bleach water to get the walls and floors clean for another season.  Every surface gets dirty on a porch.

Then everything comes back to the porch and to it's spot.

It's a LOT of work but worth it all in the end.

I love dinner on the porch and candles after dark.  sweet.
