Finally -- a wee bit of sunshine today! It had been almost 2 weeks of overcast skies and I have to admit, my old eyes were not used to all that brightness. I've probably got a few new wrinkles from squinting today but they would be totally worth it.

The rose that tries to eat the stairs is putting on quite a show -- both from a distance and up close.

Has been a day to kick back, listening to music, enjoying the view, and occasionally pinch myself.


  1. Ooo! Sunshine. Pretty sunshine! Pretty flowers! No wonder you pinch yourself!

  2. hey dana -- its pretty spectacular. i saw my landlord over the weekend and she said she planted that rose maybe 5 years ago. wow -- i thought it was much older. we talked about ways to protect it when the front deck and the stairs it tries to eat are replaced later this month.
