Some of the desert lands of California such as death valley, and here in Elizabeth lake, are currently experiencing a large quantity of wildflower blooms adding a vibrant burst of color to otherwise dry and desolate lands. However, places I was expecting to see wildflowers and poppies flourish, such as Lancaster Ca. and it’s poppy reserve, were a dry and sad let down when visited.

Sorry friends, I have not post in awhile but I am still expressing disappointment for WP for slow browser issues and inability to ‘like’ and catch up on some of my followers posts late in the day if I do not receive subscription posts directly in my email box. Since all of my posts are photos though anyways, I have moved over to instagram and can be found under the same name curious_vogel. Although my posts can’t be viewed under the same resolution and grand scale as here on WP, it is quicker and more reliable and it isn’t riddled with all the technical issues I experience here. If you are receiving my likes and comments on your posts, it is most likely because I am getting direct emails of your posts by subscription daily. If you are not getting my ‘likes’ however, it is probably because if you are not within the first 50 or so blog posts I scroll through when I log into WP.. the ‘like’ button tends to render itself useless.
This image of scorched bushes and dry landscape of the Lake Elizabeth area I think help to show California’s deep need for a good rain, as we are currently starting to face a serious drought crisis. As beautiful as our sunny skies and warm temperatures appear, if I could control the weather, I would much invite the east coast’s snow and freezing temperatures here momentarily to help curb our drought problem.
