the poppies are back

We've had a dry winter but it hasn't stopped the wild flowers from blooming.  Golden poppies are the state flower and can be found the length and breadth of California.  They are always a cheerful and welcome sight.  After two days of rain we are back to blue skies.  Linked to Skywatch Friday.

  4. Nice view. I think we have still to wait another month to see them here in Holland. Due to extra cold and dry weather.

  7. Hooray Poppy season has begun! The weather forecast keeps saying So Cal is going to get some of that rain but so far not a drop, just the wind warnings from the edge that dry things out even more...watering season has also begun.

  8. How beautiful and inviting! I love seeing photos of fields of California poppies, but have never seen them with a marina for a backdrop! How fun is that. (I notice the closest sailboat is named "Peanut Butter and Jelly," lol)
