This is a city of pink blossoms. Sure there are white ones, some orange, red, and yellow, but pink is everywhere. Here's a photo of one of the rhododendrons growing in front of my apartment. I took the picture last night after a delicious dinner at a newish Ethiopian restaurant in my neighborhood. So many lovely warm red spices in the food. The sun light was at a warm angle, too. I don't know ... it all came together for me.
