She is so proud of herself!

My favorite part of spring is when the bright red California Poppies bloom. This year is going to be the best ever. My garden has over 4 dozen buds ready to burst. The first opened a couple days ago. She's fabulous, and she knows it!

Every so often, I feel that fabulous. I wish I could bottle that feeling and open it up whenever I need it.

Joy - You can do that with your fabulous new dress!

Blue - I'm glad you have poppies too.

Zoom - Thank you for the birthday wish.

Chick - Thank you.
Just to make sure they come back strong, I bury a few of the dried pods from year to year.

Blaze - What a great sentiment. You always have such great things to say to me!

Happy belated Birthday. Sounds like we're almost three years difference in age which means you would have been one of those obnoxious freshman when I was a senior! ha ha

VE - I still have my obnoxious moments.
I would have guessed that you are younger than me. Not because you're imature, of course. You have a youthful energy.

I think I've felt fabulous once or twice. It's a good feeling. Hope you had a great birthday!

Dearest T~

The picture of this poppy makes me feel the same way I feel everytime I read anything you've written.

You're always this beautiful!

And Happy Birthday, btw.

Miss you.
