Firing up the BBQ for the first burgers of the year, as soon as the weather is nice enough to eat outside is our first step toward Summer fun.
We never know when that first outdoor dinner will happen. In our part of Canada it is variable. Anywhere from mid March to late June, completely weather dependent.
Enjoying our garden is a huge part of our Summer relaxation.
We were driven mad with attacks from a wide variety of flying insects. Then one day I checked out anti insect covers for the outdoor umbrella. We got one and it works fantastically. The insects hate it.
With the extremely short Summer season, I try to keep the garden jam-packed with colour, both Annual and Perennial. We can sit out in either the front or the back and have flowers all around us.
I usually flop on my lounger and snooze in the afternoons after work.
