i'm used to having flowers in my yard. it was a long (and cold) 7 months in colorado without a single boom in my yard. to be greeted here by several dozen rose bushes, fresh herbs and a trailing vine that covers the house has been more than wonderful, its been rejuvenating. things are getting back to normal. things are green and colorful once again. i picked these a few days ago and love the soft brightness they bring into the room. today, i am thankful for blooms of all kinds. what are you thankful for?
