Those of us who live here know the truth – the Alaskan summer is picturesque and heavenly . With warm temperatures in the 70s for much of the season, enjoying long summer days is easy. Around the late June summer solstice, the sun is above the horizon from 18 to 21 hours per day, giving us ample time to relax and enjoy the unique beauty Alaska offers.
Those not hiking or fishing may simply choose to lounge in the backyard and take in the scenery. It is easy to transform a deck into an outdoor living space for this time of year, utilizing elements that can be easily removed when the chill returns. Consider placing a colorful throw rug under your patio furniture; an awning or umbrella can provide some needed shade. Add cushions and pillows to create a posh seating situation, which will remain inviting and comfortable even as the daylight continues into the evening.
Given this perfect weather, your choice of floral arrangements is nearly unlimited. Potted plants such as azaleas provide traditional garden blooms; while Phaelenopsis orchids can provide delicate beauty. Look for unique containers that celebrate our love of nature – metallic buckets or wooden boxes show off the floral arrangements in rustic style. As we all know, placing flowers around your space – indoor or outdoor – gives a special ambiance that nothing else can.
