Poppies blooming again
Some of the California poppies are blooming again.
I cut the poppy plants back several times this year when the stems and foliage dried up.
Now that we have had cooler weather with foggy mornings, the plants seem refreshed, with green foliage.
The blossoms are so brilliant in color compared to the mostly dormant garden.
The orange poppy above is growing next to a native yellow yarrow Eriophyllia confertiflorum plant.
