Flowers in Washington

Today our heat is supposed to "break" in Palm Desert. That means we may get out of our "triple digits" and down to the 90's (our idea of fall). By October, we settle in to the 80's and stay there until the "really cold" 60's hit in December and January.

During the next 2-3 weeks, all lawns and golf courses (there are over 165) are being re-seeded, and new spring flowers will be everywhere with green new grass. Until then, our yards are looking a little dry and only bougainvillea and roses are blooming at my house. I am antsy for flowers.

On our recent trip to Washington, EVERYTHING was blooming and green. Rain does that!
I really enjoyed the flowers. Hope you do too.

Flowers are such incredible gifts of nature to us all. So very beautiful.

You got some beautiful photos of the colorful flowers. How nice. And by the way, I commented back on my blog but thought you might not have seen it-I was also born on my father's birthday, and we always had German Chocolate Cake when I was young. At some point we switched to a buttermilk chocolate cake.

Beautiful flowers! I have never seen the first one before. Very cool!!
