We misjudged a tiny bit once we started to see roses blooming around town and made our first trip to the rose garden in mid-May. There weren’t a ton of roses, but lots of other flowers were in bloom. We went back a week and a half later with my friend Maria who was visiting from Walla Walla, and a small but significant amount was blooming. I’m sure it’s looking really good right about now – maybe I’ll take my dad when he gets in to town on Wednesday! On Saturday the two of us leave for the father-daughter road trip we’ve been wanting to take for over six years now. I’m SO stoked. And happy to be caught up on photos cos I’ll be taking so many next week!!
