Poppies & A Beautiful Sunset

We get excited every year when our poppies start blooming.  Between the three plants, we get over 100 large flowers.  We love the orange color it brings to our backyard.

Aren't they gorgeous!!!

Last evening we took a short drive over the ridge to see how the construction is coming on Matthew Fox's house.  For those of you who don't know who he is, he was the star of "Lost" and he's building a house in the Highlands, which is across the road from us about a mile away.  It looks like there's a bit more work to be done before he and his family will be moving in.

On the drive back home we had to stop to take these photos of what is one of the most beautiful sunsets we've seen here in Bend.

Wow - did you photoshop those sunset pics or were they straight out of the camera? Beautiful!

All so lovely my friends. I too love poppies and hope to someday have a garden full. Thanks for the beautiful pictures of Bend Sunsets. Bittersweet for me but more sweet than bitter!
