      Thank you. It is definitely going on my favorite photos list. 🙂

    Beautiful! I can grow california poppies here in Maine, and even have some naturalized in the fields. You know, I love wildflowers, best. Do the pink ones grow wild, there?

      That’s pretty funny, Sandy because I can’t get them to grow here reliably. Sigh. I have grown them from seed and just bought them and planted them. But they never come back on their own. Sigh. I’ve never seen pink ones in the wild — I think they are “man-made” — they are beautiful though. I’ve planted CA poppies every year we’ve lived here and none have “taken.” Glad to know they are happy in Maine though! 🙂

      Thanks! I love CA poppies. Evidently, you could go to Sandy’s fields and take some shots yourself! 🙂

    Wow! Gorgeous! I love the colors, the shape, the texture here… I’ll have to look for some to shoot as well…

    yeah, I have trouble growing them here, too o.O

    I think maybe they get too much water or something, ha…I keep trying to naturalize them on a small hillside I have, though…someday!

    That’s such a beautiful photo of a California Poppy. We had them in Washington, but not so much here in Capitola!

    Gorgeous shot, Liza.

    I hope you’re feeling better!!

    D’oh. . . that last comment was me. The O’Kitty was a joke from yesterday and I forgot to clear the field. I wonder how many other comments I’ve left like that. 😀

    Fabu foto of my favorite flowers. I grow them from seed her in NJ and they return every year. If the winter is too, too harsh I sometimes have to resow but not often. How funny that you can’t get them to grow by you.

      Yes, it’s soooooo funny! 🙂 No, really it is but frustrating, too!
