Choco and I got started early this morning again. 5:00 am.
The sun had just come up but the fog hadn't completely lifted.
The rice fields were glittering as was the stream. You can see we get a lot of water around here. So quenching to my Southern California eyes.
Choco and I checked out the forest.
"Are you coming, Mom?"
Speaking of checking out things. While I took this picture Choco heard tweeting in the wheat field and took a romp. I could hear a rustle-rustle-rustle and occasionally see a black head bounce through the stalks.
"Choco come back!!! Ding-dang-dog! The farmers don't want you in their fields!"
Flowers along the roadside and on the field edges.
Poppies are abundant!
And I was ever so pleased to capture a heron flying past the morning sun!
