Outdoor Relaxing...

Although the heat in the South is {ridiciously} hot right now, the days can be so beautiful it is hard not to go outside just for a bit to enjoy it. And any outdoor retreat like these would help.

My patio needs major help!! I am still searching for the perfect furniture at the perfect price.
Love these photos! I would take any of these.

Love that screened-in porch in the third photo. I'm really going to miss our porch when we move. Maybe down the road we'll build another one!

Swooning with your 1st pic.

Vertical lawn, seating, water, awning, lighting, access to house/garden, tiny yet utilized to the max, evergreens for winter & I know the furnishings/cushions carry the interior theme outside.

Can't tell. Is it a fireplace in the wall or another water feature?

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

The daybed in the last photo is gorgeous! Looks like a lovely place for a cocktail party.

I adore outdoor entertaining and these images are so inspiring! I think it is my very favorite thing about summertime - long lunches or dinners outdoors with friends, lounging over wine and great conversation~
have a lovely sunday,
