It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Springtime!

Trust me, I know what I’m talking about. Early springtime in coastal Massachusetts always smells like blustery winds and torrential rains. It’s a very good sign – toughens up the flowers. You might try to argue that I am feeling optimistic about anything that will melt the remaining ice crags in my driveway for me so I don’t have to do the pajama-car shuffle every night. But those are the words of a cynic. I can see the sun coming from a long way off, I tell you!

Can’t you just feel it? The sunlight warm on your skin, on the first warm days of spring. That breeze that almost makes you think you should put a sweatshirt on, but you simply can’t bear it in the face of such comparatively good-humored weather. The much-needed replenishing of your sadly depleted Vitamin-D stores. I bet if you really try, you can hear the birds chirping, squeaking, singing away. I bet you can see the baby squirrels making fools of themselves near the bird feeder and taste the barbecues of summer yet to come.

I know that in these dark times it seems foreign to imagine wanting to be shielded from the sun, but I’m sure we can all remember a time when we needed a break. What fun is having your first cup of coffee out on the deck if you have to slather yourself in sunscreen before dipping your toes into the bright sun? Who really wants to wear a hat while re-potting the plants when it’s 90 degrees outside and the humid air of a thunderstorm is rolling in?

If you might want an outdoor refuge from the bright sun this summer, please give us a call soon. Whether your apprehension is from the blazing sun or excessive bugs, we’re right here waiting for your call. Unfortunately, by the time those details of the great outdoors are actually upon us, we’ll be running around installing things left and right, so an early reservation is a great idea. And to get your creative juices flowing, here are some classic options that your custom design could resemble.
