Poppy Day

Monday was a school holiday (teacher in-service day) so we planned to take the girls on a short hike in Simi to admire the wildflowers.

Best laid plans, right?

I ended up staying home with a sick, miserable Jac 

while Pop took the poppets to see the poppies. (!)

Leia took most of these pics

including that first one, which I looooove,

and a “few” selfies (which makes me laugh).

She also took several pix of informational signs and I’m so proud, since I love doing that too.

The area is still recovering from this year’s Woolsey Fire,

with burnt trees and rocks but not a lot of ash remaining.

Lots of flowers, on a short (mostly) level

kid-friendly trail, with no crowds?
