Thankful Thursday (times 3)

I've been a little remiss in posting for Thankful Thursdays of late, but this week's idea was a few weeks in the making. It's officially spring, but for a couple of weeks, California's hillsides have been displaying increasingly fabulous spring color. Our spring season is often very short, and sometimes it seems almost non-existent. Because we had a lot of rain and snow this year, I've been speculating for weeks that it was going to be a great wildflower season. Every day the hills get prettier with wildflowers (OK, some of them are weeds) and everything is green.

So without further ado, here's some wildflower photos I've taken this last week or so....

This last one is my favorite - the California Poppy, our state flower. These cuties only make an appearance some years, with the right combination of winter temperatures, rain, and perfect spring conditions. It's a good year!
