Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’ve missed you all! I have been busy. I had to look through some old archives to find a picture and felt the need for some flowers. I took this shot in May.
California poppies are the California state flower. I stated before they are protected, but they aren’t any more than any other flower not on your land, which you aren’t supposed to pick.
I enjoyed how they are growing in among the rocks here, with the spear-shaped leaves of another plant in the background.
