They're HERE!!!

Post  AvaDGardner on 3/27/2012, 5:30 pm

A sure sign of spring in SoCal...I found these on Saturday at the garden. I wondered what they were...too big to be overgrown carrots!



Unlike the AV Poppy Preseve, I can get up close with these!

The poppies in my front flower bed have started growing. They're probably a month or so away from growing taller and blooming.

California Golden Poppy - the State Flower. They always remind me of home!

California Poppy. Love them. I have seen a lot of poppies this year. I LOVE them, they are so pretty but make terrible cut flowers.

You can say that again. They drop their petals within a day or so after cutting.
