Hello, my friends! It's officially summer in NYC! Hot, hot, hot! It went from days of rain and chill to roasting, all in one day. But I'm grateful for the sun. Today is warm and breezy and I'll spend it on our roof garden. It makes me want to go to a garden party with gazebos and beautiful outdoor furniture and of course a BBQ. I love outdoor decorating. Whether it's twinkle lights on a gazebo or just a hammock between two trees or a private oasis seen below, I'm in love.
Sold at BentsWhen I was a kid growing up in NJ my grandfather built a gazebo in the back yard. I remember him pouring the cement for the floor and constructing the walls and thinking how the new hammock inside was going to be all mine. Of course each of my siblings thought it was all theirs, so we spent precious summer minutes tossing a coin for the best seat outside the house. We caught fire flies at night and laid out in the sun all day...back then it was without sunscreen of course. Ozone layer!? What ozone layer?
