Welcome to Emma Wagner Giesy's front porch.
Emma, "was the only woman sent to the Oregon Territory in the 1850s
to help found a communal society."
Her home is now part of the Old Aurora Colony Museum.
I have always fallen in love with old porches and when
I saw this porch I knew I wanted to photograph it.
I have seen so many beautiful pictures of porches in magazines and online;
so my challenge was to have some beautiful flowers and of course tea while sitting
on Emma's porch.
I had a wonderful time yesterday taking pictures here and
send thanks to the Old Aurora Colony Museum for allowing
me to photograph Emma's porch.
