Yellow poppies! How pretty. I'm guessing these are more popular to grow in warmer climates than ours - I remember photographing poppies when we visited Jerusalem.

They are blooming here, too. Not much longer, though, the sheep are back doing there mowing.

I had poppies in my garden last summer but they were very pale pink. I think I like these better.

I love poppies, but ours are gone now. I did not know that a poppy is your state flower.

I wish we had poppies in our yard. Those look so cheerful.
