Springtime

I know I probably sound like the worlds biggest dork, but I just love springtime.  This year has been especially great.  Where I live we don't have much of a winter (it's not unusual to see people in shorts at Christmastime). We usually go from cool weather in the winter and when springtime rolls around just skip ahead to broiling hot summer days. This year however, we have an actual bona fida spring.  The flowers are blooming like crazy and I've only had to run the a/c a handful of times.  Whenever I walk outside I can smell gardenias and roses in the air and it is just wonderful. Last year the girls gave me a climbing rose bush for Mother's day and it is in full bloom.  
The funny thing is that I've noticed not only do I have hot pink roses on it, but red ones too.  Weird huh?

And, yes I fully realize I should have taken the picture earlier when the pink rose was first blooming and looked it's best. The kids and I have stocked up on Claritin and we've been spending loads of time outside.  I'm probably going to spend a fortune on laundry detergent and stain remover to get all the dirt out of their clothes, but it sure beats listening to super Mario brothers all day.

I am loving this spring as well. The flowers are gorgeous this year. I love that your rose bush has two different colored flowers. How unique! The girls must have picked out an extra special one just for you. :)
