Imagining the Poppies


This morning as the Husband and I walked home, I got to see what others may see as they come to our yard. Ooooh, right?

Last year those bushes of pink daisies were a third to a half in size of what they are now. Until last month,  the bush on the right and the one beside the green pot (which is an olive tree) had no flowers at all. Amazing, huh?

The white alyssum flowers in the foreground are all volunteers. I love volunteers.

Next month, we ought to be seeing other volunteers blooming in the yard. Much of that green stuff you see are California poppy sprouts. Imagine them all in bloom. All that orange. Wowza!

    1. Thanks, Eunice. Soon, I'll need to start deadheading the daisies so that they're continually blooming. It's a good think I'm retired.

  2. I am impressed and jealous. Now I don't want to put up the dull photos I took after last night's snowfall. I love the color of your garage and it matches the flowers.

  3. Pretty site, I don't really like flowers around me because of all of the bees

    1. Thanks, Adam. Are you allergic to bees? Fortunately the Husband, Molly the Cat, and I aren't. There are a lot around our house.

    1. We've been having a mild winter. This morning I saw some wildflowers raising their leaves to the sun so I think I might sow some wildflower seeds in the next few days even though the experts say wait. We never know.

  8. For the last year or so, I have not had the opportunity to indulge myself in a garden, so I am quite jealous of yours ... I was pretty good at encouraging volunteers - glad to see it brings you joy as well! Have a super weekend!
