Oh what a wonderful morning!

The John Muir birthday/Earth Day celebration is such a wonderful event in Martinez. The only thing missing was a grandchild or two or three or four. I stayed a couple of hours and saw the opening procession of rangers and bagpipe players and walked through all the booths and displays for info and freebies. I said Happy Birthday to John Muir, a park ranger with a Scottish brogue. Entertainment at 10:30 was bagpipes, drums and a wonderful highlands dancer. I ate my lunch going back to the wonderful Eurasian eagle-owl. She is lovely! California poppies and spring is everywhere. How fortunate the rains came yesterday and today is luscious. National Parks are celebrating 100 years.

April brings four little loves.

Our neighbor's field of poppies (or puppies as DM thought I said). Backyard fun. J and M got their day in the pool too.
