Sorry for the radio silence. I took a trip to the capitol of Switzerland and I brought back a cold. I am in the mist of selecting from the hundreds of wonderful photos that we have of Bern and while I am doing that, I will share with you a little from the many pictures I took of the Rosaleda in El Parque del Buen Retiro here in Madrid. I took them as virtual flowers for a good friends birthday and mother's day, but there is n reason that I can not share them with you. If you are in or plan to visit Madrid soon go to the rose garden soon!
