It was my intention to enter this post
on Valentine's Day ....... however I was
driving across the desert that day, heading
back to the coast. Late to the party, as usual.
The roses above were a gift to me
from my sister-in-law. She is such a lovely person and so generous, always giving
thoughtful gifts. These are from her garden in Ventura County ~ California.
