Poppy Angels

I'm not sure why, but this spring I'm really enjoying watching the poppies bloom. We're hoping to be able to go to the poppy fields at about the right time to see them all... I don't know why, but I have this image in my mind of making poppy angels. You know, like snow angels. My favorite type is bed angels, but I digress.

For whatever reason, I'm just really very happy to see the poppies this year.

I LOVE poppies! I've been trying to do a poppy painting for a while now — can't seem to find the right reference photos. Have fun in the field because poppy angels sound like more fun than rain/sleet/snow mix angels.

Seems like the only time I see them is at 75 mph as I drive past them on the hillsides next to the freeways. I need to get some up-close and personal time with the poppies...
