flora

A couple of weeks ago we made it out to the poppy reserve. I have to say, I was a little underwhelmed. I don't know if it was an off year or what, but it certainly wasn't the fields painted in orange that I had pictured. The few poppies we did see weren't even open because of the wind. But we were able to find a few flowers. And the boys enjoyed wandering the blustery trails.


Charlie spent most of the time with his hands covering his ears like this to protect himself from the wind.


A very rare shot of all three smiling, eyes open, looking at the camera.






Ryan had better luck a few weeks earlier when he took some pictures from his horse trail.
I like the shadow in this one.

Yay! You made it! (I was a bit underwhelmed when I went, too.) Maybe they still haven't quite reached their peak. We kept thinking all the good ones were on the one trail we didn't take. Love the pics regardless!

That is a great pic of three boys!

how purty.

at least getting a rare photo of 3 smiling boys made it worth it, right?
