Smelling the Roses

It's been so gorgeous in  LA these past couple of days! Clear skies, snow capped mountains and sun. Such a welcome reprieve from last week's torrential downpour! Though, the warmer weather has made me feel a little impatient for Spring to get here. One of the things I'm most looking forward to, is visiting the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, when the roses are in bloom.

I could spend an entire day with the roses... taking in the splendor of the garden and smelling every variety imaginable. Pure heaven! Last year I went to the Huntington in April, and it was just perfect! The only thing that can make it better this year, is to make reservations for the Rose Garden Tea Room. Here are some of my favorite shots from last year's visit...
