  1. No mosquitos here...YET!

    I'd like to have a picnic at that table - mosquito free, thank you!

  2. Sounds like a great plan to me! (And I could use a break from the mosquitos - we're getting eaten alive here!)

  5. I love eating outside in the summer, as long as the bees don't bother me. & they usually don't.

  6. Your composition in this photo is wonderful! The angles and lines of the white rails and posts, opposed by the lines of table and benches... Excellent!

  8. A charming setting. It looks ideal to me. (spray the area with Listerine to stay mosquito free)

  9. With lots of friends nearby, not hovering over you causing the heat to stick, just sort of fluttering like butterflies making a joyful noise...ah, summer

  10. I like Sandi's thought, "like butterflies making a joyful noise"... Na, I don't have a friend like that. Mine yap, chatter, splat, howl and are generally a messy bunch of baboons who, when eating alfresco, couldn't be sedate and refined if they had to. I really really like the picnic table setting.

  12. I forgot to do Summer Stock! Wait, maybe I still can. I even have a photo for it this week.
    Love your setting here.

  14. On what Planet did you find that table ?? No way it would be bug free
    in this part of the galaxy. Gimme
    bug spray and netting... OK.. just
    fix my plate and I will dine under the gently buzz of the AC.

  15. Wisteria, as lovely as it is, is just a weed. A landscaper once told me this as to how to plant a wisteria. climb a ladder, twirl the wisteria around over your head, and throw it. where it lands..it will grow!

  17. So true Daryl! I'm participating today too!

  18. I love eating outside and last Sunday we did! Unfortunately the weather here today has determined we eat inside. :(

  19. Inviting in the extreme! Love the setting. Need to work outside so I can enjoy mine but HEY! The INSIDE is clean after all these cousins so I am shoutin' the big YAHOO this morning!

  20. We poured a giant slab last summer and I have a sure fire way of enjoying it this one. Bug free, heat free. I'm going to get one of those industrial, film maker hurricane fans and lash us to the furniture.

  21. When you find a bug-free zone, let me know! Nice photo, though. I see it as a hopeful picture.

    In Florida, it's usually too hot, too cold, too buggy, or too wet to eat outdoors.

  22. I'll bring my picnic basket soon, any special request ;)

  25. I chuckled. Yes, bug-free! :D
    Great composition in this photo.

  26. Looks appetizing--why'd you remind us about the bugs lol?

  27. Great find!
    Lovely spot to chill out. :)

  28. Picnic tables are in nrealy every childhood summer memory I have! Very large picnic tables, as I'm the eldest of eight!

    I love wisteria when it's in bloom, but the rest of the year, not so much.

  29. I am ready to join you! :-)

    Summer food: lobster roll from Maine and Key Lime Pie from wherever they do it well! Later in the summer a BLT, with a thick slice of one of those humangous heirloom tomatoes.

  30. Ahh that looks inviting... especially if you really have figured out how to keep it mosquito exclusionary. No such thing as a bug-free zone around here this time of year! You can keep them at bay to a degree with all the usual defensive weaponry but there will still be some infiltrators. I get chewed up every time I take the Tonka Unit outside!

  31. looks a great place to sit outside and enjoy lunch or just a coffee and read a good book. We have no real bug problem in sitting outside.

  32. Hi Daryl,
    I'm so behind in comments this week. That's for stopping by my Summer Stock post earlier this week.
    This little niche looks inviting indeed!
    I have wisteria on one side of my deck and I love it.
    Hope you're weekend is off to a great shart!!
