Five Miles Later .....


Over the weekend, we got the opportunity to take a gander at one of the 2009 Rose Parade Entries.

The City Of Sierra Madre's, to be exact.

It was displayed in all its glory in the main "square", smack dab in uptown Sierra Madre.

Up close and personal, vibrant colors and more .... for your enjoyment, sans fragrance (sorry):


Mingling, mingling, observing .....


Winner ... !!!

Cranes, nestled comfortably amongst the roses .....

Big, decorated elephant ..... complete with ears dripping orchids!

Detail .....

Flowers and plants and more .....



Couldn't they have at least provided a trashcan
for the driver to toss his empties?
