in full bloom

not even sure what kind of tree this is ~
but it is absolutely spectacular
there must be over a thousand flowers
every branch is covered
with layers and layers of tiny pink rosettes
you can smell it down the block when the wind blows just right
feeling so lucky to have this on my street to greet me each morning
spring is here, Colorado
and it is in full bloom


the gift and the joy of expecting a baby
it sure is some kind of wonderful
it makes me so happy to see such a great friend
looking so lovely, so fulfilled, so happy!
only a few more days until your little one arrives R.


all the st. helena roses

to stroll through st. helena this time of year, is to be in awe ::: the roses.
the breeze carries their fragrance and the light dances with their petals.
and with their strong aroma, Charlie truly learned to sniff for the first time.
and so, we were happy to walk and walk and walk some more.
just a few best friends and all the st. helena roses.
