Spring is Wild Flower Season!

For the first winter in a long time, we had rain!  Rain means flowers as it starts to warm up.  That means a drive and a picnic!

On one of our outings we drove to an area near our home.  We drove through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to see the hills covered in colors...nature's palette!  Join me as we drive into the foothills.









It was a lovely, warm spring day!  I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday this week. 


Thank you Susan for enabling us to share our spring outings!  You can visit Susan and the see the other spring adventures at A Southern Daydreamer.
