Brightness greets my day

California blooming like crazy after months of non-stop rains. Even deserts are covered with juicy bright flowers. The photo was made on Diamond Valley Lake in 2017

Being cooped up inside all day, writing that was part of my job, gave me the desire to venture out in nature, to enjoy the sunny day, and think deep thoughts.

So I informed my boss that I had an errand to run and during my lunch break, I grabbed a sandwich from the deli across the street and headed towards the park near my office.

The sight of intense blue sky and golden flowers swaying in the spring breeze acted like a tonic on my tired brain and boosted my wilting mood, adding a zing to my step and a lightness to my step; this walk was just what I needed.

  1. I tried growing California orange poppies once… I think I may have some seeds – but I have a few seeds that I didn’t mark, thinking I’d remember. I’ll have to try growing some and see what pops up 🙂

          1. I picke up two different tomato plants, and hope to transfer my own lettuce, celery and some herbs out there. Maybe I’ll start some other seeds inside. But I still have to get the soil outside ready 🙂
