Stopping to smell the roses...

While it is infinitely rewarding to share inspiration with one's readers - for me, the best thing about contributing to our blog is that it serves as a constant reminder to open my eyes and take stock of the world around me.  While meandering through Pacific Heights this afternoon, I noticed some roses growing on an old Victorian.  After snapping a shot with my ever-ready digicam, I decided to take a city walk to see how many more I could find.  Boy was I in for a treat: roses were everywhere!  I found at least one bush on every block.

It is a amazing what you notice when shift your focus.  You'll be surprised by what you often overlook in your very own neighborhood.
