Lovely California natives in the late afternoon light
How lovely these blossoms looked as they swayed in the breeze.
The Verbena de la Mina, in the foreground, has grown to almost four times its original size in height and width. There seems to have been enough winter rain to give the plant just the right boost.
Behind the verbena are Orange Chiffon California poppies that have already grown very tall.
The shade of orange is very striking, and the blossoms themselves seem stronger than the other California poppies in our garden.
