Spring in the Desert!
The timing and amount of rainfall we had this winter made for a prime wildflower display in the desert. For the last couple on months something has constantly been in bloom. I've managed eight trips out to a spot close to home, yet secluded enough to feel like you're out in the wild. Every trip has been an amazing burst of color, but this one in March proved to be the most spectacular. I took my Mom out for the day to celebrate her birthday. When I headed into the middle of this Poppy field to get a good shot, I felt just like I had stepped into the movie The Wizard of Oz. It made me wonder if Poppies really would make me sleepy! No, they didn't. But they sure made me want to linger.
