Mellow Yellow California poppies





I'm on a roll these days with photos of California Poppies. I generally think of them as orange but you can see here that they come in a variety of colours. These three are predominantly yellow. (Isn't that cream one lovely?) These are my offering for Mellow Yellow Monday.

I just love these flowers and have fond memories of driving through fields of them along the Mendocino coast of California. There are lots blooming wild in Victoria too.

Here's hoping there's a spot of brightness in your Monday. Find more mellow yellow photos here.

  4. They're beautiful. Thanks for the inadvertent reminder to record The Wizard of Oz. It's on this Thursday.

  5. Poppies are one of my favourites - but I have never seen yellowy ones until now (you are the second I've seen to post some!). Nice shots you've taken.
