Whilst strolling in Oakland's Mountain View Cemetery, a flash of bright orange attracted my attention. Upon further investigation, I realized, looking through the iron door of a mausoleum, I was seeing a beautiful stained glass window depicting glorious California Poppies--or, perhaps, nasturtiums. Either way, they are beautiful and will always remain alive.
