Poppy madness!











Spring is finally arriving in the desert.  This year is going to be amazing after all the rain we received so far and I am about to share with you a little taste of it...








So one day as I was gazing out across the valley from where we live, I noticed something strange. It appeared that the entire mountain side 30 miles away was turning orange!  I knew it must be our Arizona poppies but couldn't believe what I was seeing. To see this from so far away!  Time for an adventure. I grabbed Luke and we took a drive across the valley to check this out...
Unfortunately, none of the photos we took did these flowers justice...
 
 It was breathtaking and blinding! The color was so intense...



As far as the eye could see...



Nothing but insane beauty...



And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the...poppies.  This experience is now burnt in my brain. We live on a truly magical and beautiful planet.

Thank you, Jen! This was a spectacular one of a kind event that I have been hoping to experience again but has never happened since. This was in southeast Arizona near the hot well/dunes located between Bowie and Safford Arizona. It's been six years and I have never seen this again. I was glad I documented it!!
