It’s summer in DC! Just ask the thermometer who is currently taking a nap under a shade tree. Whew, it’s hot and humid, but I’m excited to have a cute little outdoor area in our new townhouse. It’s small, much to my dog’s dismay, but it’s already got a lot of great plants and a teeny tiny yard that maybe I can even manage!
That's right, be jealous of my mad Paint editing skillz
The goal: A Moroccan themed paradise that I’ll want to lounge in while I drink some tea and read a book.
The plan at the moment: Rake up the old leaves, cut back the current plants, and really see what we are working with. I’d like to buy some cute sparkly something-or-others to hang off the branches from my neighbors’ trees. A couple of cushioned bright colored chaise loungers and a mosaic table (perhaps a DIY project like this one from Fresh Home ). And an outdoor rug/mat.
Any recommendations? Also – how do I keep the mosquitos at bay in this new paradise?? They are killer!
