We haven't had much sun here so I'm compensating by taking photographs of the brilliant yellow and orange California Poppies that grow so well in this area. Most of them are that rich golden orange that lifts your heart.
But in my opinion they're best of all when there are a few other colours mixed in--cream, soft yellow and even pink and bronze.
And I also love the two-tone ones. These photos are from a mixed clump just down the hill from us. I'm going to try to gather some seeds from these over the summer and plant them in front of my house. Then I can see summer out my window even when it's cloudy.
