The California Wildflowers....

It is the time in California for our hillsides to be covered in the rich hues of colors from the wildflowers. And are they ever Gorgeous!!!!!!!!! DH and I took a day trip up to Tejon Ranch where the Wind Wolves Conservancy is located. As you take the drive to lookout point to park and walk the path, you can see for miles all the colors of purples, oranges, yellows and some pinks if you are lucky enough. We or I should say DH was able to photograph the rolling hills of the "Wildflower Lupines" in their vibrant purple colors. These flowers went on forever and being against the backdrop of the beautiful green mountains made them even stand out more. The honey bees were just buzzing all around, and seem to not mind having the human species in their way of collecting the pollen that is needed so desperately to pollinate our San Joaquin Valley agriculture fields. The path was about 2 miles long and made a complete circle back to where we had parked the car. The day was warm and sunny and you could just feel the presence of the Lord looking down on his beautiful palette of color he has given to us to enjoy and make us thankful for even the smallest of things. There are so many other pictures DH took of other kinds of wildflowers while we there that day and I promise I will get them printed, carded and placed on here for those of you who have never been able to experience the beautiful California Wildflowers.

The purples are so rich in color. God has truly blessed your husband with a wonderful talent. You added just the right amount of embellishments. This would be a card I would purchase if it was in a shop for sale. I look forward to more of your wonderful photographic creations. It is nice to see some different kind of talent emerged in the blogging world instead of using all stamps. Keep up the great work!!!! :)

I would so love to go there. I know I shouldn't say this...but the tropics gets boring...all green all the time...not much in change of seasons and nothing at all like these splendid views.
