A little trivia...did you know they used to paint the ceiling of porches blue. Birds, bats and bugs would think it was the sky and would be vulnerable to other creatures looking for a meal so they would not build nests or sleep on the porch. That said I live in Wisconsin, if you don't have screens you will be bothered with flies, bees (wasps) and mosquitoes. Now that I am older, I need seating that includes foot rest. Else all of the outdoor areas are beautiful. Thank you for sharing
