poppies

Added on by Jordan Martone.

joe had never been to the poppies!

poppies grow everywhere in the desert during springtime. i grew up in the high desert > the antelope valley > lancaster. our yearly tradition was to visit the poppy fields each spring and take our out-of-town friends with us. it was the only time of year that the desert looked beautiful. the only time. 

throwback of baby slocum siblings in the poppies. appropriate.

so, this weekend, joe and i went to visit my parents in lancaster and the poppies were in full bloom so i just had to take joe on this inaugural visit.

*photo cred to joe. 

i hope your weekend was full of relaxation and that you stopped to smell the "roses" too. 

 

p.s. i can't tell you how many time i typed "poopies" instead of "poppies" while writing this thing...
