They aren't as close as they look in a telephoto shot, but they are out there none the less.
A lot of folks who have a wind farm too near their homes, complain of the constant noise of them turning. Any problem in your area?

The nearest ones are about a mile away, so no noise.

You sure have different-looking trees out there, RP.

Cheryl, those poppy fields are spectacular! Wow!

My pushkins (pushkinia). They're wonderful self-seeders, and some of the first spring flowers:

I was going to say they were awfully skinny trees.

Those pushkins are lovely. I especially like the way they are growing up between those rocks. I'll have to look into getting some.

Thanks, Taxy. I have them all over, along with Siberian squill, which are deep blue. From a few bulbs of each, they now pop up everywhere, which is fine with me. The foliage disappears in the summer.

Hardy little things. Wish I could have gotten a less-blurry pic, but I'm finding once I get down to ground level, it's getting harder to get back up, so it was a one-shot deal.

Jon, your baby granddaughter Ava is a little beauty - what a smile!

Rick, you're sure out in the middle of a lot of open space there.

Pretty little flowers, Dawg! I also like how they grow among the rocks. Loved the ocean view pic you posted, too.

Some of my patio pretties, taken early this morning. A little blurry here, it was clearer in my pic album for some reason.

Nice Cheryl. What kind of tomatoes do you grow in pots?
