Some floats from this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade, held in Pasadena, California, on New Year’s Day. All of the floats in this parade are required to have all surfaces covered by natural materials, such as flowers, plants, seaweed, seeds, bark, vegetables, or nuts. For more, see the 2014 post Decorating parade floats, at my journal.

This year’s theme was “Find Your Adventure.”

Guess what?

B and I are adopting the cats of a cousin of mine who sadly passed away several weeks ago. His sister (who lives in New Mexico) cleverly e-mailed me several photos of the trio while I was trying to decide if it was a good idea to do so. It worked.

It’s too darn hot -- again -- so I was looking for more ice/snow photos, when I came across the beautiful work of photographer Igor Shpilenok, who specializes in the natural wonders of Russia.
