Mountain Monday Disappointment

Long story short, I wasn't able to get out today until the light was fading. My pictures SUCK this week. Too dark. Ah well, I figure it is a good lesson to learn, in terms of finding lighting that works. I do have a couple, but this week is being chalked up on my learning curve. (Did I mix enough metaphors for ya there?)

I LOVE poppies. I am not quite sure I can explain why I think they are beautiful, but I think they are!







Many of you seemed to enjoy the sheepies last time, so here are some more.



I don't know what kind of flower this is, but the yellow is sooo brilliant!




Spring is quickly chasing the snow up the mountain sides.






Little Man got a medal for soccer. He was so proud!



These two love each other. It never ceases to amaze me at how patient the Pea is with the boy. She loves him so much, and he adores her.



This is the Pea showing off her "muscles". The face is always squished up when she shows you.




Check back on Wednesday. I have something special to show you! And a mini contest.

Little Man is looking very grown up in that picture! And I like poppies, too. They remind of of walking home from school when I was a kid.

Could it be that you love poppies because of your California roots?? You know it's the state flower, of course! =)
