I said the other day I was going to the poppy reserve to take pictures and I did. Because of all the rain we have had it is a spectacular year for the poppies. They cover the rolling hills and meadows of the Antelope Valley where I live. Of course the down side to all this is the traffic. Drivers block the narrow roads in an effort to admire the dainty flowers. But it is more than worth any hassle they might present.
