California poppies are sprouting everywhere

Our first sunny day in a week, and look what I'm seeing in almost every empty area of the front yard, California poppies sprouting everywhere!

They're even sprouting through the wood chip path, but I guess I'll leave them alone.

I used to think poppies bloomed once, and that was it.

Oh no, it's not the case.

For example, I deadheaded this plant twice during the blooming season last summer and fall.

Now it's lush, with foliage about 12 inches high.

And here are more sprouting.

This promises to be quite a spring bloom!
