What a find! Michael and I were invited by our friends the Satchwells to attend their ward campout for dinner last night. The drive up to the site was out near Tremonton and as we were passing one home, we saw that the entire yard was filled with these pretty red tulip-looking flowers!
On our way back home, we noticed another huge patch of them off the side of the road and so we stopped to pick some. Turns out they are wild poppies! Dani and I gathered huge handfuls to put in vases on our tables. Aren't they just beautiful?
I have never seen wild poppies anywhere, and I would have never thought they would make an appearance in Cache Valley Utah. Maybe all the rain we've had has something to do with it? But maybe it happens every year up in the mountains. All I know is that I'd love to live in that house we passed by, an entire yard full of bright red-orange poppies. Talk about happiness every time you look out the window or step on your porch!
Anyway, here's a little color to brighten your day. It sure has made mine that much more cheerful. I am grateful for a Heavenly Father who places such beauty on the earth and little surprises like this to remind me of His love. Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend!
