Obviously, you’ll need to wait for an evening without too much wind and rain, but you can actually find some pretty cool temporary shelter options online these days if you do enough research anyway.
Become A Master Flower Arranger
It’s often surprising how much a good arrangement of flowers can affect the overall aesthetic of our gardens.
