    What beautiful flowers! It’s a totally grey rainy day here in Rhode Island. Even the purples and blues in my garden are muted, so it’s lovely to see something bright and cheery.

    Genie – Thank goodness you are high and dry. – It’s so nice to see those beautiful flowers like I had in my childhood growing up in San Francisco. Enjoy California.

    We don’t grow any cut flowers since we are on the road so much. Thanks for the rays of sunshine from your blog. Today it is hot 92 degrees and humid in Middle Tennessee.

    I love these outdoor displays. They do this in February/March here–too hot now. Displays will start again in mid-October. I like to go to a restaurant near here and sit on the patio because there’s a store with an outdoor display right across the way. Lovely. Happy GTS,

    This is a great picture. How are things in CA? I don’t really love that you are farther away than before. I still have that guy to set you u with…..

    Good luck there though. xxx

    Lydia, that’s one thing it is almost never here…muted. I’m glad the colors brightened your day!

    RV, so good to see you stopping by! I’d guess cut flowers would be hard to keep up with on the road. Any plants in that RV, though? I would think a carefully anchored pot might work?

    Aiyana, that sounds like a lovely view from that restaurant!

    Laura, yes…pricey…but sometimes I just can’t resist.

    Cole, things are terrific — I’m so glad I’m here. Tell that guy to come on out for a visit!
