Shelters From the Sun are Garden Wise

Escape the Sun After the 4th!

We’ve had several weeks in the DC-area where many of our days have exceeded 90 degree temps; this week we’re topping 100. This coming weekend it will continue to be warm and I’m sure I won’t be the only one seeking shelter from the sun.  Below is a pic of one of the sun shelters from my garden, with the  GardenWise studio in the background.  Our fun brightly colored striped umbrella shields us from the bright sun by day and  protects us from sudden rain storms by night.

How do you escape the sun –what type of shelter do you have in your garden space? An umbrella, a covered pergola, strategically placed trees?   Below is a post from Southern Living about Sun Shelters, a great link to share as we look ahead to another very sunny and warm summer weekend.
