Nora Arrives on Poppy Day!

Nora came out from Colorado last week to spend some time with her son in Salt Lake. She spent the afternoon with us today as we start Nora and Judy's great adventure tomorrow. We're driving to Reno to see our friend Anne in the morning.

In the meantime, Ed and I had fun taking Nora for a walk in Lambert Park.

We found our first poppies in bloom today! The first was this pretty orange California Poppy up by the water tower!

The second was a group of red poppy's by the homestead ruin! They are a hardy bunch, considering it was cold and snowy today!

We were happy the snow didn't amount to much and we were able to enjoy our afternoon walk with Nora. I told her all the names of the flowers I've learned.

We found this pretty orange flower that we have not yet identified. It is very small and delicate (picture not to size)! It may be Scarlett Globemallow!

We also found this tiny little daisy flower! I have a lot of plant identification to do when I get back from Nevada!

After our hike we took it easy for the rest of the evening. We had a big salad for dinner and watched the movie Hidden Figures. It was an amazing story that falls under the category of "How could I not have heard this story before?" We're glad we know it now!
