Poppies!


Brett and I spent the weekend in Lancaster visiting the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. It was incredible! You would not even believe the magnitude of poppies in this place. What is also incredible is that so many poppies can thrive in such harsh desert conditions. It snows there in the winter, gets very hot in the summer, and while we were there we experienced some very high winds (I lost my hat a few times!) We spent Saturday hiking around the reserve learning about native Californian plant life. It was a great weekend, however there was no cooking involved whatsoever, so you'll have to be patient with me this week on posting. Until I get back into the kitchen, enjoy the poppies!

Beautiful I will have to go some time. It makes me think of the poppy field in "The Wizard of Oz."

"The Wizard of Oz" crossed my mind a dozen times that day. I could hear the witch saying, "Poppies... poppies," over and over again:)
