Everything is in bloom right now and even though it wasn't a sunny day (which is rare here) it was still lovely. The chipmunk kept smelling all the flowers and finding random seed pods that he hands me. Most of the lovely flowers are right outside our door alongside our house. I love this time of year.
The photos are (from left to right and down) shoes, poppies, chipmunk picking a dandelion, seeds he handed me, bottle brush tree in bloom, red rose, a magnolia seed pod he handed me, pink rose, sage in bloom, berry bush, yellow datura trumpet blooms, jasmine blooms, smelling lavender, iris bloom and a bird of paradise.
