... dreaming, mining, sunning ... the golden state and on the way home from West Sedona this morning with a rejuvenated 95 Ford Van (thank you to the Anderson Family ... Anderson Automotive) I saw some California Poppies in a friends front yard. Stopped the van and with camera in hand took a few shots; the wind was blowing the leaves and I prefer to get shots like that because of variations in color, light and shadow caused by the petals being displaced. So here it is and hope you enjoy the beauty of the flower and the little creatures who subsist on food extracted from the bloom.
Cork's home and life is good ... she is sleeping, Q is curled up on the chair next to me and about time for me to get some rest too.
Have a wonderful day and carry some beauty with you as your journey takes you through the day ... and a smile to cheer another.
