Inspired by a walk with my mom while in Ojai last month.  Those fond memories still looming in my mind, take me back to that place and time... relaxed, spontaneous, adventurers we were... seeking out the hidden treasures there.

Nothing like the sight and scent of walking through a field of fresh lavender.
This is a field up in the quaint town of Ojai, CA.

On the Ojai Conservation Trail...

My mom and I took a road trip to Ojai last week for a few days.  What a beautiful time of year to explore that area, and what an adventure seeker my dear mom was.  As we entered the winding road to our B&B, we came across this conservation trail.  Those fiery orange/yellow/red trees caught our eye immediately and we just had to stop and take a stroll through the tree lined paths.  More Ojai inspired paintings to come soon.
