Poppies, Poppies Everywhere!

My dream come true. An enormous field of bright red poppies for the girls to frolic in, and frolic they did. Lucy LOVES it here, and I can definitely see why. In addition to a home full of new toys, new dogs, and new fun people, there is a back yard with a playscape as nice as our parks, lots of ride on toys, and many other goodies. We went to Wildseed Farms today where there are millions of flowers. It was nothing shy of amazing. I couldn't believe how many flowers there were. Really, we have had a lovely day. We will be picking strawberries in the morning and then hopefully sometime we can play in the creek!!

Here are a few preview pictures.

I am so impressed with your pictures! I know you have said before that you own a Nikon D40. Have you always had an interest in photography? Have you taken any classes or do you just have a natural eye? I just bought a Canon Rebel Xti and am dying to learn how to take cool pictures. Any suggestions?? Have a great weekend...sounds like so much fun!
