My Two Beauties

In drier environments the Rose carpets look like the first two photos, but when it's raining, they look more like the last two photos. Rose carpets do very well in California weather and around my house, because they like sun, and our house is mostly sunny.

We were having so much wet weather that it was useless to fight it. Trinity was stir crazy inside all day, so I had to let her out for some fun!

She was so happy to be outside and ecstatic to touch the rainfall. She had her hat on in the pictures below, but didn't keep it on for long. In the matter of minutes, she was soaking wet. It is such an incredible sight to watch her playing with the rainfall.

Trinity pointed out some rose carpets that were sunken in the rain water. We spent some time in the rain digging a narrow ditch to let the flood run away from the flower beds and into the sewer. It was a couple of very fun hours in the rain with my sweetie.


  1. You got a lot of rain! Adorable pictures; Miss Trinity looks so cute in pink and purple!

  2. The roses look beautiful, and Trinity is just a joy to watch just as you said!

  3. love the rose pictures, and the picture of your daughter too, she is very lovely. i love rain, maybe it is because we seldom have rain here in CA :)

  14. This reminds me of how when I was little, I used to spend hours and hours outside in our garden, playing with big, bright pink gumamelas, pretending that they were palaces with princesses inside of them, and I could just stay out there and play pretend with the flowers like that, for HOURS! :)

    Lovely memories brought back to me from by your post.... thank you. :)
