There’s no denying the sumptuous pleasure of a decadent summer afternoon outdoors in the welcoming shade and relief of the porch.
A book in hand and icy cocktail in the other, with nothing but the gentle breeze and backyard buzzing to disrupt you:
What could possibly improve the tableau?
Just look up and you’ll find your answer.
