As a blogger, do you ever get a sense of deja’vu with that nagging feeling that you have posted something similar before?
When I saw the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme Prolific, I remembered this word and something to do with poppies. And guess what? I searched google and found my own post from three years ago!
What better way to celebrate this theme than with photos of native California poppies? The beautiful orange flower is indeed prolific in March and April and adds beautiful pops of color along the freeways and in neighbors’ yards.
Poppies are California’s State flower.
I planted poppies from seeds a little too late for them to bloom this spring, but since they are annuals, I hope to see their little golden heads in spring 2016!
**Update** they never did grow. I’ve read you have to plant poppies in late Fall. Better put it on my to-do list then if I want my own poppies.
I refreshed this post today from April 2015 when I participated in Ed’s Sunday Stills Photography Challenge. Wildflowers were the theme.
I enjoyed Sunday Stills so much that I am bringing the photo challenge back with it’s launch on May 6th! Visit my page for more information!
Enjoy the prolific poppy flashback!
