CALIFORNIA POPPIES


Our state flower, the California Poppy, has a long growing season. They seem to bloom in every nook and cranny. The pale yellow flowers are seen less often than the Golden ones.
Enjoy this bouquet as you start another week.

I love the photos of the poppies. I was trying to remember, but I don't think I've ever actually seen poppies in person.

Wonderful colours. I don't think I've seen those shades, tho. Brings sunshine into a room, I'd bet!

Didn't you post some of the golds some weeks back, which got me doing something similar with ours?

Don't have the pale ones here, that i know of.

This reminds me of when I lived in San Diego and they would just grow like crazy along the highway.

Congrats on the house situation. I'm sure it must be a huge relief to you.
