Thread Name: BS: Spring in California?
Subject: RE: BS: Spring in California?
Grandma Offer died in Detroit in the late 1950's. A year or so later, Grandpa scandalized the family by taking off for California, falling in love and getting married, and then getting an annulment. He then moved in with us in Wisconsin, and brought back tales and photos of his exotic adventures in California. I was about ten at the time, and I was amazed by his pictures of carpets of orange poppies. I've lived in California since 1974, but it isn't often that I've seen flowers as lush as the ones in Grandpa's pictures. This year may be a banner year for wildflowers in California, and I plan to take my sweetie on lots of romantic flower hikes. Hope you do the same with your sweetie, Annamill.
