|before the flowers opened - obviously Eschscholzia californica|
And then the flowers opened:
|um - poppies around here are yellow or orange. not both.|
|It decided to grow in the middle of all the purple flowers, one of the "shadier" beds in the garden|
|it didn't start blooming until early June - way later than all the natural poppies at the reserve or in the mountains|
I'm joining Loree at Danger Garden for her favorite plant meme - although I'm sure I won't be posting weekly! Her favorite plant is always worth a look, and the comments at her blog have more awesome plants to look at here.
