just a few flowers

My folks made the trek from Southern California to Davis this weekend. It was kind of a big deal. It was Mother’s Day (you already know that) and Mom’s birthday, and Dad had been given a “get out of jail” card by his doc. We strung together a three-day set of naturish adventures. Farmer’s Market, a picnic lunch at Horton Iris Farm, a Mother’s Day breakfast at the Yolo Wildlife Basin, and a Birthday visit to the UC Davis Arborteum. A little walking, a little sitting and admiring and lots of flower photoshooting. Kind of like this:IMG_6004IMG_5985IMG_5951IMG_5958IMG_5953IMG_6045 IMG_6058IMG_6081IMG_6061IMG_6076IMG_6131 IMG_6123IMG_6127IMG_5992
