It finally rained today, for the first time in weeks.  I love flowers, and I am embarrassed by my failure to nurture my own, even though the climate is (mostly) to blame.  My drought-ridden gardens have been desperate for water. Unfortunately, today's rain is unlikely to make a big difference, and so for now, I have to settle for memories of flowers I've seen in other, less arid places:

I absolutely love hydrangeas:

And lush hanging baskets:

These tulips were in Pike Place Market in Seattle:


A magnolia in Houston:

A blossom in Vancouver:

And these gardens in Oregon:
