California Poppies


brighten up our town and countryside:







The pictures are from 2012, when I took a day to explore the countryside around here. It looks just as lovely this year, poppies are everywhere except for in the the canyon. No flowers here at all, just some low growing weeds. I'm not even sure I will need the tractor/mower guy to come this year.

  1. I love poppies and I wish that I could grow them. I have made several attempts but each time was a failure.

    The good thing about having nothing to mow is that you will have no one to pay.

  2. Oh yes, I remember these (we lived in California for four years), and loved them!

  3. you must be having the same type drought we are.. even a desert can have drought. these poppies are just gorgeous. i have never seen them even in a vase or growing... i did not know they grew in clumps. i planted wild flower seeds in 3 buckets in the back yard, waiting to see if they bloom

  4. Dear Inger, I so love poppies. I used to grow them in my four perennial gardens in Stillwater (MN). We, too, have been in the midst of a drought. We had torrential rain--connected to the tornadoes that passed through here--last week and may get rain again today. I hope all this is enough to help the farmers. Peace.

  7. They really are pretty. Too bad they aren't growing in the canyon. Drought can really ruin a landscape.
