Thanks for this timely reminder Susanne. Slathering on the screen is a daily morning routine for me once I start gardening outside.

I always get a mild burn the first few sunny gardening days.I keep sunscreen by the back door but mostly forget to use it at least in the early days.

Yup so true I often burn too on the first hot day! But we all want to peel off the winter clothes and feel the sun. And then we move all these plants and they are in the hot sun- we are silly.
Good article idea and perfect timing for the East Coast having a weekend coming getting in the 80's maybe.

Suzanne,

Thank you so much for reminding people of the dangers the sun can reek upon our bodies. I too thought that after my foolish youth of sun worshiping I was now taking care of my skin but alas I was wrong! It has now been 2 months since I had a biopsy on what I thought was a patch of dry skin on my shoulder and lo and behold it was and is lymphositic melanoma. I am having my 2nd operation 6-16 to remove a larger area with a skin graft. I also have lymph node involvement so please all of you do not think that it is just a little sunburn because they might have big consequences. Please enjoy your gardens but lather up!

Wishing you the best results , meangladys. and thanks for reminding us all the danger is real. I have a new sun hat that I like with a strap, but now will be using that suncreen.
