California Poppies, In the Winter!

So pretty! Check out the beautiful leaves of my emerging California poppies. Started from seed, and self-seeding (in other words, new flowers resulting from seeds dropped from past seasons’ seeds), the beautiful flowers are very prolific, and a few have managed to sprout up in unexpected places, which I will later gently dig up and transplant to another part of the garden.

This all started from planting a few handful of flower seeds from a relatively inexpensive bucket of wildflower seeds. Each winter, I have mounds of flowers to look forward to – now THAT’S an excellent return on investment!
