Aren't these lovely? I think they are a form of hibiscus...

Red and White

This is what it looks like on your anniversary when you have the world's sweetest husband (tuberoses were in my wedding bouquet, so they are a long-standing tradition around here).

Thank you, best husband ever!

Happy Valentine's Day! (Today also happens to be my 33rd wedding anniversary! I couldn't be happier if I tried!). Hope everyone found some love today...

Sunday in the Park

 These are early 1930s murals by Belle Baranceanu in the New Mexico building in Balboa Park. The building was built for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition; it was then remodeled by architect Richard Requa for the 1935 California-Pacific International Exposition.

This sculpture, from the same time period, is by William Schwiegert...apparently someone thought they needed to decorate it for Mardi Gras? (Kinda creepy!)

And the Queen was there!

The Last Rose (Again)

This was a small closed bud on one of my rosebushes before I did the annual hard winter prune. They keep on giving!

"OMG, whipped cream!" Said every dog, everywhere.

I believe this lovely to be a Western kingbird...there was a pair fluttering around with nesting material in their beaks. (I got my hopes up that it might be an oriole--from a distance I wasn't sure! Not nearly bright enough in color...)
