CG, Beagle thanks you for the pic of her cousin Spike! She's not into camping, though she does like to sunbathe.

A couple of random pics from yesterday, at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve State Park, about an hour's drive from home. Despite the drought, the little bit of rain we had in Feb and March was enough to bring the poppies and other wildflowers to life.

My 3 yr. old grandson Tyler was such a trooper, he walked the entire 3 mile trail with us like a seasoned little hiker. He was so excited, he loves to get out and walk the great outdoors.

All I can think of is:

In Flanders field
Where poppies grow

I've read that poem a thousand times over the years, and it still makes me choke up a bit....

Cheryl, I followed the breadcrumb to hunt down these promised pictures. How spectacular, especially when the perfect combo of orange is sprinkled with purple Lupine's.

We have a nearby mountain we enjoy looking at from our front porch and I've often thought of how beautiful it would be with a smattering of California Poppy's. We found a recipe of how to make poppy balls out of seeds and fertilizer and want to get the neighborhood together to make the hundreds it would take to seed the mountain. Steve could fly us over it and I could drop the bombs. We could all be famous for generations to come!
Sounds like a plan to me.
