Spring Obsession

Flowers and plant-life are in full bloom here in Southern California. My allergies aren't loving it but my eyes are. I've noticed a difference in the kinds of flowers here. Tulips seem to be few and far between which is a bit disappointing. But I have noticed the the roses here are gigantic.
Every time I comment on them, I am told that they are perfectly normal, but I don't think I've ever seen such amazing roses. I'm obsessed.

I have seen those roses, and they are incredible. Do they smell good, and just as importantly, do they have earwigs inside?

But I was really visiting to say that I miss you, too.

No, I agree with you Michelle - the roses in CA are in fact larger than here on the East Coast. I have noted that difference as well these past few summers spent in Boston. I think it has something to do with the dry air...or maybe not. BEAUTIFUL!!!

BTW: I hear alergy shots are nice...

Now I'm visiting to inform you that it's time for a new post. What am I supposed to do when I'm bored?
