Outside (and Inside)

Summer has begun. Well, actually, I don't believe it has officially begun. But. I mean. Let's be real - if it's hot out in Maine, it might as well be summer.

I can't spend as much time outside (in the shade! I pretty much stick to the shade and/or evening hours) as I'd like because of the swarms of mosquitoes and black flies, so I spent some time sifting through the Outside archives instead. This post consists of my favorite finds. My dream backyards.

If you live in the opposite hemisphere, you can look at Inside. It may be more seasonably appropriate.
