Welcome Power Poppy friends! Today it’s Christine back with you, kicking off a brand new theme for The Blossom Challenge at Power Poppy!
This month we have an Inspiration Challenge based on a photo from my recent trip to Northern California for work. At a local friend’s recommendation we took a day off to head to the coast, driving through the Sonoma Valley wine country to a spot called Bodega Beach. Its a sweet little coastal town with miles of beaches along the coastline. It was such a stunning surprise with high cliffs, bluffs and pounding surf; you could believe you’re in Cornwall, England rather than the Cali coast. The spot I took this picture was at Bodega Head where you are high on the bluffs looking down at the rugged coast above. In the foreground you can see the vegetation with the pop of pink. These plants are succulents called Sea Fig, and the flowers bloom a number of different colours. Its an invasive plant in California, so they’re trying to control it, but it made for a beautiful picture!
