SS BEAR FEVER AND DATES!

This is kind of a flop as far as what I wanted.  The bear is to dark.  Hard to see in the photo...
Date night with Paul! He's scouting roses.....
Portland Oregon has the most amazing rose garden over looking the city!
I took these pictures a couple weeks ago on a beautiful summer evening.
Paul and I were suppose to go to a movie but we had a long island ice tea with our dinner.  We were both getting so tired, yes we are THAT old.  :) We were afraid of falling asleep during the movie!
I'm SO SO glad we didn't go to the movie...we had so much fun goofing around in the garden!  Paul was pointing out all the colors, "Oh wait this one, no this one is better...come see this one it's purple, Hon you gotta take a picture of this one for sure!"  My logical software science engineer is not an artistic or gentle man so seeing him get so excited about these roses was funny AND fun!
Sometimes when you live with a wonderful place like the Portland Rose Gardens, you forget how amazing it is.  Your used to it.  I used to live in the country on an airstrip.  Now when I go back to visit my Mom it's the most beautiful place and I never noticed while I was living there.  It's good to take a break from things in order to learn to love them!
BUT I'm not taking a break from the bears...still have the fever.  BEAR FEVER!

I can imagine how fragrant those rose gardens are.
All your bears are sweet and this illustration.

Thanks for your comment. Great idea to switch the fingers where I hold the pen. I usually hold it between my middle and ring fingers but I'll try it a new location this week.

Your 3 wallet picks have me intrigued:)


And the wedding gift drawing in your previous post is amazing!

Ah those roses are dreamy (and the bears are cute!). The best rose garden I ever smelt was in the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The scent was incredible.

Beautiful roses! Beautiful bears! I agree, sometimes we're so used to the 'norm' of our locality that we don't appreciate the true beauty that's there.

i don't think the bear is too dark at all, and the tree is great! Love the flowers too.
