Summer is for looking outdoors
… so send the winter draperies to be cleaned and stored. In their place, drape lengths of fabric over the curtain rod… or make “bead” curtains, very Mediterranean, out of ball fringe by the yard… or shirr sheer curtains on temporary rods, as full as you can get them…

A table gone summer, skirted to the floor in shiny, laminated plastic or a gay chintz… a white bowl piled high with one of the most decorative of fruits, lemons… a pitcher full of nothing but leaves.
