Fashion Therapy - California Poppies

I stopped for photos pretty much on the side of the road when I saw all these flowers blooming. Lavender and poppies attracted a gang of bumblebees, all humming and buzzing around each other. I love how they look like they're bobbing for pollen.

I was in the field behind this a few weeks ago and the grass is already all scorched and dry, as are some of the flowers. I forget how short spring is. I need to get on my summer resolution of swimming in the ocean, no matter how bone-chilling it is! We're supposed to have the hottest Indian Summer of for-ev-ver so maybe I'll wait until then...
