The Grape Soda Lupines that bloom with the poppies near my childhood home at the edge of the Mojave are some of the most beautiful flowers. The contrast of the Orange poppies against these vibrant purple blooms has always been a favorite. I always thing of the Yellow Umbrellas when I think of spring. I remember being a young boy, fascinated and inspired by Christo’s amazing installation – it was basically in my backyard – of yellow among the springtime flowers.
