Today's photo is fitting as I believe today is the Rose Parade for our city. Our roses are taking off now. The iris' phase is almost complete. I each week it seems like a new flower is blooming. This has been a great year for flowers.
I did notice my raspberries are starting to make fruit buds and our persimmon tree has little persimmon buds. I hope they make it this year. Last year they all fell off.
Here is one of rose's. Practicing with my macro again of course.
