Airport Wildflowers

I picked up my wife, Amber, at the Portland airport yesterday morning. Very close to the airport is an Embassy Suites Hotel where I usually park and wait until she calls to say they've landed. As I turned into Embassy's lot I noticed a field of wildflowers. These look like they're from the poppy family. It's interesting to think that this small part of life still goes on below commercial airliners making their approach for landing.

Isn't God's creation wonderful?!!
