Poppies and Puppies

 As the official State Flower of California, poppies can be found just about everywhere, even in concrete jungles due to its invasive nature. 
 On Sunday we decided to take the boys for a good run and went towards Fort Ord.  I have to admit I am definitely a city girl because I was very uneasy in this woodsy area and kept my eyes peeled for mountain lions.  Luckily we didn't go far from this empty road which is where we found these poppies.
 They are such delicate and bright flowers and I just love that they are very California: cool, casual and colorful.
 So here is my Newman from the Canine Travel Team.  Although the car rides with Newman are less than fun (he has major anxiety!!) once we get to our destination it is all about his ball and playing fetch.
Here are all of my boys, having a great time on a Sunday afternoon.  Part of enjoying the coastal lifestyle is to savor the little moments.
Like this one.

Love the poppies & puppies. Looking forward to seeing B down here in So Cal. Wish u & the canines were coming too. We'll have to come up for a visit sometime in the next year. BTW I have viable poppy seeds if you want to sow them at your house. I have a couple growing outside in a planter in R'side, just gorgeous. Anyway, take care thanks for blogging. U r my hero.

I dont think I have ever seen a poppy in real life. So pretty!
Great pics of the boys but why are they playing on the highway?;)

The poppies are beautiful and I love the colors...but I'm such an animal lover, and your little ones are just too cute, you captured them so well - in action.

Hi, Laura,

So sweet! love your reminder about savoring the little moments...

I lived in Boulder for a while and there was a mountain lion hanging out in the suburbs one afternoon...yikes.

I do prefer sea lions!

I love Californian poppies. I have grown them in the past and love the sunny colours. They did beautifully when I lived in Perth, which has a real Mediterranean climate.
And the puppies are adorable...goes without saying!!
