"I'm Only Happy When It Rains"

Which is why I love Portland sooo much, it's good for the red roses ~
Cheers from the Pacific Northwest TO THE WORLD ;o)

(What? These don't look like red roses to you?)

You managed to show so much in one picture, which is very interesting! I'm sure those are roses, in my language all flowers are roses :)

Portland thats close to Washington AC and the Canadian section of the Coast isn't it. I was in that region a long time ago. If you don't like rain you are never happy because the sun doesn't shine much there. Lithium pills are considered a fools paradise there. Glad you are happy.

Oh by the way. Do you know the Annie Lennox tune "Here comes the rain again. Falling on my head like memories ... ". Some people have good memories inspite of what the background music may sound like. A. L. she's my main song writer / singer.

used to have some of those roses too! Grew too fast to keep them trimed , so I took the chain saw to them. Maybe it's not the same thing. We call um 'Red Top' in my part of the world. Pretty red color at the top though. Florida could use more rain and maybe you would enjoy more sun??????? Blue skies and 99.4 F here right now (at 5:26PM) Yeppers, it's hot!
Some pretty funny comment from Hallo, Dave and Barbara.

thanks mr. O, yes happy in my own fool's paradise, even without the big L. portland is about six hours drive to Vancouver BC and ten minutes from Vancouver WA, right across the river. AL is also a fav, "would i lie to you" comes immediately to mind. :O)

hi larry, it's quite gratifying that these roses are so well recognized all over the world; i told dave and barbara i'm planning to visit london in september, and asked if i'd be happy, will it most likely be raining for me, heh. no i would not enjoy more sun, ever, redheads don't tan dear, i've been referred to as "solarphobic" and can't deny it ;-)

thank you samir, i seem determined to take pics when it's raining. you speak the right language then on your side of the world ~

What a riot of colour! Those pretty "roses" at the bottom (actually Lychnis coronaria) grow like weeds in my garden.
Thank you for your nice comment on Larry's page by the way!

There's nothing like bright flowers (and leaves) on a rainy day!
