Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

One Poppy Plant

The time has changed–we have “sprung forward.”  The sun sets later, our days are getting longer , which always makes me happy.  Equally exciting is that spring is springing with the blooms and blossoms in Northern CA.  Just beginning.

I have started my watching for Golden Poppy plants at the American River.  Eventually, the hillside will be covered with Poppy plants and Lupine, but not yet.

There was one plant blooming with the river in the background.  SO–one plant, made the most of it…

The beauty and complimentary colors of the poppies and green grass just makes me smile and be thankful that we have such any spring growth. We have such a lacking of rain, believe we are more than 8 inches below our norm at this time of year.

So, I was thankful there was one plant with blooms and took in the beauty to share!

We did have rain on Easter morning, not too much–but any rain is fabulous at this point!  Felt bad for anyone celebrating the holiday with any outdoor activities, rain was gone almost as soon as it came.  Love the clouds and stormy views!

One last view to tide you over–I realized that the header on my blog is exactly what I am hoping to find once again.

First One...then more

  3. A bright beautiful spot of sunshine in that field. Very pretty photographs, Laura! It’s especially nice to see color, as we have had very little sunshine and spring-like weather here in Chicago.

  4. Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely
    different subject but it has pretty much the same page
    layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
