But wait, I live in Florida!! Exactly. You live in Florida. #kiddingnotkidding

We have had the driest and warmest year so far on record here in Cali.  Its causing quite a commotion with the flowers and wild life....things are blooming early, birds are nesting early....confusion abounds.  But how pretty are all these blooms in February?!

I took a little stroll through Golden Gate Park recently and captured a few colorful and delicate blooms that are showing up.

Floral features are showing up a lot in the design world too right now....while it can border on Laura Ashley 1980's I rounded up a few images from Pinterest that I thought paid good design respect to this growing trend....along with a few floral inspired pieces that caught my eye!
