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?


Perfection!
