Forests! - a luxury to be able to look at them every day! But I think the fires are scary. Many leafy trees here in town, and there are parks and some woods at the other side of the country.

We're away from coastal areas too, so our weather & climate is drier.

Forest fires are a big thing here, especially when we haven't had our snow pack, & we're surrounded by forests. We see forest everywhere we look, from the front door, from the back door, to being downtown......

I see we're at about the same degree of latitude, the only difference is your continental climate - less clouds and more extreme temperatures.

Looks beautiful Plinius!

I wear sunscreen year round, as well as hats. We have lots of sun here, even in winter, & reflection off the snow makes it even brighter. Summers are short but they are scorchers, & I hate heat. I only go out in summer when its necessary for groceries. Rick is the gardener, & he wears the sunscreen & hat too.

Nice roof garden Chris!

Pictures at last! The first two of my roof garden and number three of my old kaffir lily with its annual explosion of colour.

So you don't really get used to the sun too! And perhaps you also walk at the shady side of the street.

Chris, one word - Sunblock. I have a large tube of #60 sunblock sitting on my bathroom sink and apply to my face and exposed arms, etc. every morning.  In spite of daily application I had a small carcinoma removed from my face last year when I went for annual dermatologist appt.  When the temps go over 90 I began my summer hibernation with my books and crafts. :)

It's ok Barbara, thanks! But I wonder how your skin can stand all the sunlight over there. I have to get used to the light in portions of 15 minutes - walking to the supermarket included - with a high sunprotection on my face, hands and arms. LOL, that sound as if I pass the winter under a stone.

Chris, sorry your first day wasn't so good.  I finished all my major projects for my space for this year - and Yes! the rain begain about an hour ago. (Areas of Texas are now out of drought for the first time in five years.) :)  Now to sit back watch things grow and pull weeds as needed.  I read recently that "if you don't know what it is, don't pull it."  I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised to see some flowers bloom from seeds I planted over a year ago.  I'm definitely still learning.
