Poppy Fields

The hills outside of Lancaster are aflame with poppies. For those who might think of desert as barren and brown (although you are sometimes correct), I thought I would post a few pictures of our current landscape, filled with color and the promise of spring.

Natalie loved marching around the fields, barefoot. We had to help her avoid stepping on the flowers.

Our Godson Michael and his mom, our dear friend Lori. As you can see, the flowers go on forever, on all sides. It is really a spectacular sight to behold.

If you've ever contemplated a visit to the Antelope Valley, now would be an excellent time!
