Here are my final entries for Becky’s June Squares; the roofs at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. Coincidentally we are currently looking at bids on a new roof for our house but I don’t think it will end up looking anything like these. For more on Becky’s June Squares go to An official residence
Today, for Becky’s June Squares, I’ve chosen two unusual conservatory roofs, one at the Domes in Milwaukee and the other at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Texas.

This week Cee has us climbing up on the roof for her Fun Foto Challenge. This puts me in mind of the time we lived in a house with a flat roof and would sit listening to it creak as the snow piled up on it during the winter months. No flat roofs in this collection except for the first one at Arlington Park racetrack in Arlington Heights. I would hate to have to get up there and shovel snow off of this one.
