Since I think that the mothers of sons tend to get the bum rush when it comes to getting pictures of their offspring prior to formal events; I have invited all of the parents to come over for picture-taking, as well, so; I really wanted the porch to look extra-nice.
And, it does, even though I refused to plant flower boxes for the porch railing, on the off-chance that it gets too cold for them to thrive, this; despite the 85 degree temperature that we have enjoyed for the past three days (I'm no sucker, I know how you work, Mother Nature!).

And I thought I was having impure thoughts about Zac Efron before I read the books.
It's the eyes, I swear...
No, really! I swear!
