One More Thing...

I love a lot of things about Springtime...but this has to be one of the best advantages to the warming weather and pollen in the air.

Actually, this rose looked better yesterday, but I didn't have a chance to snap a picture. Today it's still gorgeous and I found myself wanting to sit and stare at it for a long time. Hmm..."maybe I should take a picture" finally rang in my mind. Funny thing was, I knew that the moment I grabbed my camera I was going to need to share this on here. Some flowers are just too pretty to be kept to oneself.

Also, I have to note that a rose is on my TOP 5 list of favorite flowers. I adore them, no matter how ordinary they seem to others and how cliche it sounds....there is nothing quite like a rose (except a Peony, I love them more.....). Yes, a rose has it's thorns, and therein lies so many "life lessons" and metaphors. My mind swims with poetic comparisons.

Check out this lovely cluster Floribunda, Sexy Rexy (and that name holds special meaning to me as a past addict of the corny flick Empire Records). I would love to have a big section in my garden devoted to these! Maybe when I retire and have more time for gardening....

Love the Video Killed the Radio Star part best.

Or maybe the shoplifter scene. ROFL!

I was crazy over A.J. LOL

I'm glad to know someone else who knows and loves this movie. It's not your typical "classic" eh? ;o)

Yes, Video Killed The Radio Star was my fave part too...well and also when the girls made fun of Rex.

I have never seen any of these besides DD! How wierd am I!

Morgan~ Not weird, you're probably smarter than I am, I killed off a lot of brain cells by watching some of these movies too many times. LOL, I'm convinced they have made me a little dumber each time I watch them (which might be why I like them so much, LOL).
