Raindrops on roses

Some of our neighbors have roses right next to the sidewalk, and I took this photo with my iPhone the other day when it was raining. The two little round drops perched on top of the uppermost petal look like Muppet eyes to me… and the way it curls over is like a mouth.  As if the rose were a character from Jim Henson’s imagination…

This Is Not An Illusion

This isn’t a trick with the camera where I would place Madeline two feet in behind these tulips to make them look bigger. These Tulips are freakin ginormous. She looks tiny but is actually in the 75% percentile for height for her age. I’ll have to find out where the Mrs bought them and report back here. I almost remember her saying that she got them at some discount store for next to nothing.
