110 degree heat index has me realizing how unprepared for hot summer weather I am! Those umbrellas would be a nice addition to my backyard right about now. I love the idea in the above picture from marthastewart.com for a DIY shade structure using a drop cloth! Our dog would love it too... we often find him lying behind a perennial desperately trying to get shade! Some sort of shade structure is definitely a necessity for our backyard. We have it on the to-do list!
