I just love poppies.
I love that they are vibrant and orange and red.
I love that they open and close
as the morning comes and the evening goes.
I love that they remind me of my dad,
whom I called Poppy.
Who came and went too soon.

Sunny Succulents.

Beautiful succulents from Gamble Garden
in Palo Alto, Ca. A place I always visit
when I visit home.
Hope your day is filled with sunny moments.

Hike on Powell Butte.

This weekend we took a hike
It is so pretty up there,
and only 15 minutes from home.
It reminded me of growing up in California,
the hills, the trees, grasses swaying in the wind.
It is so good to get out of the city,
if only for a few hours.

Thrifting with Lori.

Last weekend my friend Lori and I
went to one of our favorite thrift stores.
Look what she found and let me take home!
These tickets are such nice colors.
Who has a great idea of what I should do with them?

Thanks Lori for giving me this super score.
You do truly bring color into my life.

Funny Little Collage.

Here is a funny little collage
I made last month.
I usually work with my own imagery,
but Mabel just called out to me.
Don't you wish you had an aunt mabel?
