Spring has finally arrived in the valley! This past winter has been extremely dry, which isn’t surprising considering California is in a long drought. So it was with great relief that we received a thunderstorm, and quite a bit of water, a few weekends ago. Enough, in fact, to send all the wildflowers into bloom.
We took a nature walk this morning, despite the wind, and marveled at the blanket of yellow that graced the desert floor. It took me a moment, then I realized that the wind was sweet; it had picked up the wildflower scent.
When we returned home, the boys used the watercolor pencils to draw the flowers that we had picked. These flowers will be pressed (once I figure out how to do it!). All in all, a pleasant day indeed!
