Poppies are few this year. This is one of only 3 in
the Fiesta Garden.
Same poppy with petals blowing in the wind.
I thought this would be a great poppy show. Hardly.
Plenty of seed went here where I thought I was
overseeding a Daffodil bed. Not a single daffodil showed up.
Even weeds are sparse here indicating that this bed in high
oak shade is dry and needs a load of compost.
There are some Corn Poppy plants in a bed near the highway that look good for later -- you can't see them -- and Larkspur there is already starting bloom.
California Poppies with what's left of red cabbages.
California Poppies are just coming on for a bigger show later.
Blame for sparse Poppies probably lies with me for not scattering more seed in richer soil. Maybe winter freezes had something to do with but I am doubtful.
First Echinacea blossom
Iris from Janie Varley's garden. Love the orange falls.
