DC’s GardenWise on Shelter from the Sun

“Let sun shelters be your gateway to more gratifying outdoor living–you might even find yourself drifting to sleep beneath your umbrella.”

We’ve had several weeks in the DC-area this season where the temperature has exceeded 90 degrees — today it’s 102!!  I spent the 4th of July in a shaded area near a pool, and even on a 97 degree sunny day, shelter under a very large umbrella with some strategically placed trees with a group of friends allowed for a pleasant and relaxing day.  We even enjoyed a nice breeze or two!

I came across this post from Southern Living about Sun Shelters, and thought it would be a perfect post-4th of July post.   Below is the umbrella from my own yard, which has provided shelter from many sunny days.
