On my last post I shared two books I’ve read this summer. Today I’m sharing a recipe for the Peach Iced Tea I often sip while I’m reading and some photos of my favorite reading spot – my porch.
The recipe is quite easy – First I make a peach sugar syrup by heating up water, sugar and some sliced peaches and let it steep for half an hour. I love the color of the syrup!
Then I brew the tea using 8 cups of boiling water and 4 tea bags for 3-4 minutes. The secret is not brewing the tea too much, or the peach flavor gets lost. I serve it in a pitcher with extra peach slices and lots of ice. It’s so refreshing!
Here are the photos of my favorite summer reading spot – my porch. It’s a condo porch (aka small!) but it’s covered, so I can sit out there even when it’s cool or raining.
I love the bright colors of the rug and cushions! Every room needs a little storage – this tiny table and basket hold my gardening tools, coasters and ashtrays (as any smoking must be done outside).
Every summer I switch something up – buy new cushions, add a rug, change out the coffee table – this year I switched out some old pots to these apple green planters. They are so fun and bring out the greens in the table, rug and cushions.
I went with a classic green and white theme with the plants this year – impatiens, ivy, asparagus fern and caladiums…. a one little purple flower just for fun.
My porch angels.
A favorite find from All Inspired Boutique, a really cute shop in Duluth Ga (and online). This fun plaque sums up my porch perfectly!
