The new teak furniture and umbrellas from Kingsley-Bate arrived in time for the July 4th weekend! A departure from the hunter green set that was in place for years, the new blue set stands out rather than blends into the landscape. I'm trying to get used to this change.

A good friend suggested infusing some other colors onto the patio to break up the expanse of blue. Behind the patio, there is a bed with flowering perennials and shrubs. Between the chaises, I'll try some containers with annuals.

I don't actually sit by the pool often. I'm always jumping up to prune, weed or inspect. With hot, sunny weather forecasted, maybe I'll enjoy the pool area this weekend (probably reading a new garden book).
