Summer could not come fast enough

I hate winter. Always have. Every winter I wonder what in the bloody hell I live in Ottawa for. This winter was especially bad. VERY. VERY. BAD. Hence my excitement that spring has finally arrived. Spring and summer mean more than just warm weather. It means having more spaces to decorate. :) I posted about the rattan patio set I just picked up, which is a great start to my backyard space. I thought I'd go through my photo stash and see if I could find some inspiration for everyone in my shoes who is just dying to get started outdoors.

No kidding! I just did a similar theme post as well. Spring can not come soon enough in New England, either!

the thought of sitting at dusk on a patio sounds perfect. If only it wasn't 40 degrees outside.

I could spend alot of time in any of these spaces. Sigh.

I won't have an outdoor area to decorate, but I am still looking forward to Spring and Summer. It seems I hate winter more and more. I struggled this year, and it's not as bad here in Ohio as it is in Ottawa!
