No thanks. Too bloody hot down there and too bloody cold and too bloody wet and too bloody windy and all in the one day!

I was in Melbourne a few (well more than a few) years ago playing in the national masters volleyball championships over the Easter weekend.

Arrived Thursday and it was really hot and dry with people complaining about the lack of rain. Friday morning hot and still, by lunchtime it was freezing cold and pouring rain with a wind so strong it nearly blew you over. Next day it was back to bloody hot again. Talk about 4 seasons in one day.

And at the edge of the Lower Hunter, it hit 41.2 at 2pm. We expect 43+ tomorrow.

Right now it's positively glacial here, at 38.

Yes, I blame the vineyards. Let us drink more wine, and eradicate those pesky climate-changing grapes.

I have an unreleased red rose bred by George Thomson that stands up to even the hottest of days which is quite unusual for a red rose.

Maree it has a reasonable perfume, as the plant matures, the blooms are getting bigger and with more petals. The other day I pulled one apart and it had 100 petals.

Gemini baby has a softer pink to the edges of the petals, it produces up to three times more petals and the foliage is dark green with the leaf shape more rounded.

Maree a lot of roses only get sunburn if the foliage has dropped due to fungus defoliation. the canes are exposed to the strong sunlight and inturn the bark burns from the residual heat. Also if you have n't watered enough they will also defoliate or the leaf will fold trying to preserve its moisture, this lets more heat into the centre of the shrub resulting in sunburn.
