There’s something about sitting outside on your deck or patio in the summer that can’t be beaten.
You can hear the birds singing, feel the sun warming your face and see (and smell) the beautiful flowers in the garden. It’s just so relaxing!
When I lived in Canada, it seemed like winter took so long to end that when the warmer weather arrived, everyone just wanted to get out of the house. Decks and patios were everywhere…and they would all be packed with people enjoying the outdoor weather as soon as it was possible to do so.
Even though I live in South Carolina now where the winters are not nearly as long (or as cold!), I still get that urge to be outside when spring rolls around. So I created more than one outdoor living area in my yard. And, yes, I do use them all :)
