blimey that is hot.. your roses look none the worse for the heat though.. how often do you water that way? It is hot on the northern tablelands too (although we won't hit 40 C) but the worse of it is that we are not getting the rain - we get most of our annual fall in summer.. maybe when the wet season breaks up north it will filter down here.. confused

Hariet the temperature outside just hit 48.8 C. The roses are doing ok as long as they don't dry out, watering like this in these temps is twice a week. During a normal summer once a week is enough.

Show-off.
I'm glad it's only sitting around 39C here.
Sweating
I just hosed the dogs off. Tonight will be cooler - and the roses will get a hand watering. No flood irrigation on THIS slope. LOL

I think you need to move that thermometer...! One presumes you have aircon and are too sensible to be out in it.
Temp peaked at 40C here. (42C in Benalla). Plenty hot enough for me!
