This is a great porch for the summertime. I like that it has a covering that looks mostly like ivy and other vegetation. I am not sure how this spot would hold up on a rainy day, but if there were a section that has a constructed covering then it would be useable for all months of the year. The furniture is simple, yet works well in the space. I really like the wood, red bench on the side. The surrounding garden is awesome, and I can see why they opted for a more uncovered style of porch. The space actually works better this way.
