Rose in Readhead Park, South Shields

Readhead’s Rose

Further illustration of the effects of global warming perhaps? Roses are still blooming in the Readhead Park in South Shields and it’s almost mid December! Temperatures the past couple of days have got down to zero centigrade overnight and five degrees during the day, which is pretty warm for this time of year. There has been a little bit of snow on the hills further inland but nothing to write home about.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 80mm lens, 1/90 second, f8, iso 200

  1. What is your weather like usually, Curly? That still sounds cold to me!

    Beautiful rose, though!

  2. Still blooming in mid December. That’s truly amazing. I’ve seen some pots with flowers around here, still in very good shape, but not roses. Well, I haven’t been to the Public Garden in a couple of weeks… Anyway, Curly, I wanted to wish you very happy holidays and a New Year filled with harmony and special moments. I’m leaving town tomorrow for a few weeks. See you again in January. 🙂

  3. What a beautiful rose. How unusual to still be flowering at this time of the year. A lovely photo would look lovely on a Xmas card.

  4. Lovely photo! Ours were blooming very late this year, too, past thanksgiving, which is unheard of before this.

  5. Yep…we have two good “Peace” rose blooms developing nicely. But, in South Shields , too? Amazing. (Nice shot, Curly).

    BTW…..those lit up houses are fun. Tks for showing those.
