We couldn't stay in town for the parade this year,
so we made our way up to Pasadena a few days early
to see the floats as they were being decorated.
A family we met in line at the Rosemont Pavilion --
a good place to see the volunteers gluing petals
and seeds onto the forms -- told us that they had both been floral
designers years before. This, they said, was the
Olympics of floral design.
