It was successful except that the weather is unsuitable for poppies. They came up nicely. Nights near 60 degrees and days in the upper 80s cause them to bloom too soon with blooms shattering the same day. I caught these as they opened, one with the sepals still attached.
By this evenng, they were already shedding petals, which I did not photograph.
California poppies Eschscholzia californica have no buds that I've seen in my garden. They seem to tolerate our heat a little better. Corn poppies Papaver rhoeas made huge bases of leaves but have no stalks of buds so far. I've seen one Larkspur bloom. Blue Toadflax Linaria canadensis is blooming in rough lawn to the delight of butterflies and benficials.
