I have about 2 -3 metres of shade at my house which my car JUST fits in for ds have his lunchtime nap in. As the months have gone past this bit of shade has got narrower. Once we're past the longest day (soon I believe) - will the width of the shade keep reducing or stabilise?
I seem to remember (from the dark and distant days of Geography at school - I did Scottish Higher and CSYS in it too ) that it does get higher in the sky - think it's something to do with angle of the earth to the sun,
someone will probably come along and correct me though
in that case it may well be the coolest place in your house. Definitely the shade will start to increase from now on, because the sun is gradually moving further south (if you can see the sunset you will notice it is slowly moving back round to the south).
