am watching the Rose Parade on New Year's Day. The Rose Parade home, Pasadena,CA, is 36 degrees right now! Seeing all of the beautiful floral designs of the Rose Parade makes me think of my own beautiful roses. Last summer I took a photo of a beautiful "Joey" rose from my Fallbrook garden. This blossom is almost six inches in diameter and all of the blossoms on the tall rose bush are equally big.
But spring will come and summer, fall and finally winter will follow again (although in Southern California our seasons are less distinct than in some other areas). All the seasons are special with their own characteristics ... so Happy New Year to everyone and best wishes as we go into the seasons of 2015!
