For my backyard walkabout today I used a Leica T camera with a wide-angle 11-23 mm zoom lens. I was pleased that I could focus this lens at relatively close distances. This first image is of a yellow California poppy flower. The first of these that I was fully open this season. These flowers close at night, and when cold — so I was glad to see it open this morning. You can read between the lines that I was happy that the sun was out this morning. Many more images of red and pink poppies. I planted four tomato seedlings. We will see if they make it this year. Progress is being made with the home renovation — the first section of the copper gutter was installed, and the first stone step to the patio was installed.
