This Sunday I want to highlight the shade of trees as natural air conditioning. The featured image is of a farm house that is completely shaded by strategically placed trees on all sides. The summer sun in North Carolina can be particularly brutal for the three months of June, July, and August. With a farm house placed in the middle of a 100 acre farm of wide open fields, there was a great need for shade to relieve this heat.
Here are two more pictures of these trees on the farm to give an idea of how out in the open the farmhouse would be without the trees:
Again, many thanks to Becca Givens at “On Butterfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” for hosting this weekly challenge. Go have a look to see other posts by her and her followers with all of their beautiful tree photos.
