Summer will soon be gone, but there is still time to enjoy your back deck. Pour yourself some cold lemonade or sweet iced tea and soak up the rays in your outdoor space. Add a few colorful touches to your deck area like some bright, patterned pillows on a bench or festive patio umbrellas and you’ve got an instant party atmosphere. Perhaps those lime green and teal blue umbrellas are now on sale? With nice weather through September you will still get plenty of use out of them.
