Flowers everywhere!

Here in Palm Springs the flowers are everywhere.  And everything is so manicured.  But it is hot! Hot! Hot!  They are telling us it is really unusually hot for this time of year.  I tell you – I would rather be in the mountains or even home.  The cool weather is my friend.

I am, however, loving all the vegetation.  We were told they are really at the end of their blooms but at home we are just starting to bloom.
