Whether you’re at the beach or in the garden, be sure to wear sunscreen and check your skin regularly as early detection is key!

National Sun Safety Week is June 5 – 11. Don’t forget about protecting your eyes from the sun! I always wear sunglasses and it’s not just to look good.

Also consider wearing a wide brimmed hat, such as aTilley, which includes UPF protection just like Dr. Allan Armitage. #PerDrA

Martha also posted about the allee she planted utilizing Marleys Pink Styrax, anew pink weeping Japanese Snowbellintroduced by JLPN and represented by UpShoot. It is named for John’s daughter Marley and provides a bounty of fragrant blooms each spring.

National Rose Month

#ThornyThursday

June is National Rose Month but I celebrate the beauty of roses each week across my social media sites with #ThornyThursday.

Rose Chat

I’d like to introduce you to my rose co-hortsChris VanCleve andTeresa Byington, hosts of the Rose-ChatPodcast. Follow these leading rosarians to learn more about this timeless flowering beauty.

Another great source of rose information is The American Rose Society.

Eat Your Roses

Roses are also edible. To learn how to harvest them for use in the kitchen I recommendEat Your Roses byDenise Schreiber and St. Lynn’s Press. It includes some simple and easy recipes for Rose Petal Ice Cream, Rose Petal Jam and Chocolate Pavloa with Strawberries and Rosewater – Yummo!
