Hi Jill, sorry I am a bit late. Trying to catch up today. I fell in love with the California Poppy when I lived in California for several years. Your photos capture them beautifully. Thanks so much for sharing with Today's Flowers and I hope you are having a great week.

We had these in our garden by the beach (here in the UK) when I was little and I loved them ...mostly because I liked 'helping' the flowers by gently pulling the 'hats' off the buds to release the flower petals. To this day I still clearly remember how silky those pretty flowers were. :)
