Roses are loving the Summer heat

This week we've had record temperatures reaching up to the mid 20s to early 30s (celsius). The weather is scorching, good old me has to use sunblock of factor 40+ in order to be protected and that's when applied every 2 hours - I blame the English skin I have.

Anyway it looks like the roses at Robbins Park Rose Gardens are loving the sun. Linking up with Skywatch Friday.


  1. They are some beautiful roses, a sight for sore eyes.
    I start with SPF 50 and go up when necessary, thanks to my Scotch/Irish roots.

  2. I love photo #2. It's a beaut.

  3. Pretty roses under beautiful blue skies! I hate using sunscreen but am careful to always wear a hat and sunglasses.

  4. Those roses are beauties. It's better to use sun block rather than getting sun burn. We are getting snow and sleet right now. I don't have to worry about the sun, we con't even see it. :)

  5. Yes, summer is in full swing. I'm loving the heat.

  6. A beautiful spot!

    It's ranging between minus thirty and minus twenty celsius in these parts at present, depending on the time of day.
