These are the skies in my neighborhood this morning.  We've had 3 days of significant rainfall (significant by Arizona standards!)  We needed it to relieve the drought and low rainfall totals.  I am hopeful that if we can get another shower or two over the next month we may have a beautiful wildflower season this year. 

Here's a haiku I composed on the topic...

Storm clouds sob then weep
Rare gift to desert's hid seed
Blooms will rise to breathe.


These red poppies were a demonstration piece done for my painting students, in neocolor II pastels.  We may get gold poppies soon, but if you want these red varieties, you have to visit the nursery.  ;)
