Farewell to the Poppies

I just had to participate in Cee’s challenge FOTD today because, well, the poppies are almost gone as are we.

People came from miles around to see the Mexican poppies, purple lupines, and other wildflowers on the mountain and in the state park.
Sadly, they only last a few weeks of the year, and they are mostly gone now, just like we will be tomorrow.
I never dreamed I’d be so emotional about leaving this place, but I’m ready to move on to the next adventure…after we visit family and friends in Ft Worth. For now, let’s say goodbye to the poppies together! Until next time!

Mexican poppies, saguaro cactus, and our beloved Picacho Peak!
