Smelling the Flowers


Lately I have been taking the bus and BART (our subway system) to and from to work everyday. One of the benefits is that I am walking more but also seeing a lot of flowers blooming in people's yards on my walk from the bus stop to my house:














It has been really cool enoying the colors and beauty everyday.
