On Monday, 4,500 roses arrived at my Senate office from friends and supporters across the country -- what a wonderful Valentine's Day gift!


Thanks so much to those of you who sent them for such a warm and kind gesture on this special day.


I am emailing you some photos we took when the roses arrived in my office on Monday so you can enjoy them too.


Thanks especially to Stacy Davies in Claremont, CA who spearheaded the whole project. She came up with the idea for the Boxer rose campaign and encouraged hundreds of people in the online blog community to join her in contributing to the effort. I spoke with Stacy last Friday and thanked her personally for this terrific gift.


I hope all of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and that you got to spend it with those you love. Let's especially remember our brave men and women in uniform serving overseas who weren't able to spend Valentine's Day at home. Thankfully, our wounded soldiers recovering at Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center were also be able to enjoy this wonderful gift -- we sent the roses there Monday afternoon.

We've got a lot of work ahead of us. But every once in a while it's nice to stop and smell the roses. Thanks again to everyone who participated in such a warm and generous gift.

In Friendship,




Barbara Boxer

How wonderful that Boxer is getting the recognition she deserves, and also that the roses were donated to Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

A great day all around!

...and another thing I thought was great...there stands a US Senator in a nicely casual sweater and slacks.

She looks like a working woman to me.
