    Outdoor living in Arkansas is a bit different than in other parts of the country. By summer we have mosquitoes , flies and lots of heat. So Spring and Fall are favorites of mine. In the Spring we have beautiful flowers everywhere and everything is green and new and smells so good. You can enjoy birds of all kinds, babies of many varieties and start a garden to harvest by July. The wonder of our earth is more apparent then than any other time. The part of the state I am in is a farming area and there is little or no smog so the stars are very bright and clear at night. It's easy to drift off into a dream world where there is no suffering and pain, wars or politics. Only the sound of crickets and frogs to put you to sleep (and an occasional coyote howling). Fall is beautiful too with the many trees and foliage to be found here. The weather is perfect for fishing or boating, rock hunting or most any outdoor pleasure you could want. Why would anyone want to stay inside when they can enjoy mother nature at it's best. :) But on the hot summer days-it's off to a lake for a cool dip, the river for skiing or maybe enjoying a cool cave somewhere. :)

    The feel of the breeze, the warmth of the sun, the smell of the grass, and all that green!!!

    My favorite part of outdoor living are the mottled patterns of sunlight through the trees that appear on the ground.

    I love to sit on the deck when there is a mild breeze, and revel in the pleasure of the wind against my skin. I'll have breakfast out there, read a book, sip coffee. Any time there is a light breeze, I am bee-lining for the deck!

    oooh, lovely. We just bought a house with a nice screened-in porch off the back. We're loving having our meals outdoors, with a lovely spring breeze and a view of the birds in our backyard.
