I've heard from so many of my friends around the country who have already had several snow storms… so I thought I'd send you a little CALIFORNIA SUNSHINE from the San Francisco Bay Area… it's funny that we finally get "fall" in late December.. our trees finally turned autumn colors just in the last couple weeks.  As you can see, the leaves haven't even fallen yet.. and we have gorgeous blue sky.. here is a photo from earlier this week (no, I did not retouch the colors in photoshop):

December fall tree 

And I still have roses blooming… someone better tell them they are going to get pruned soon!

Hope you are having a great day..
