California dreaming

A few weeks ago I used this photograph of Eschscholzia californica, the Californian Poppy as my Wordless Wednesday picture.
Janet left a comment asking for more photos as this flower opened.  I am happy to oblige:
Such a beautiful flower.  It took me several attempts to get these allegedly easy plants to grow, but once I managed to get them going they now self-seed around beautifully.

Simply stunning!
