After seeing someone post about California poppies, it made me think about the wildflower blooms going on in my home state right now after our heavy winter el nino rains. Many of my FB friends have been posting photos.
(I'm now in England but this is the most beautiful time in California-- Feb and March our only 2 months of green)
I can't seem to grow CA poppies here although I see them in other people's gardens. Always make me think of home.
