Today's Flowers, Mellow Yellow / Iceland Poppies, Indio, California USA

 Click on photo to enlarge!
 It was a beautiful sunny day and perfect for an afternoon drive out to the desert.
I found these Iceland Poppies in the desert region of Indio, California which is in the heart of the Coachella Valley.

Wonderful desert in bloom picture -- nothing quite like it.

Did you stop for a date milkshake? (from the sublime to the slightly ridiculous, I know.)

Carolyn, the blooms are beautiful but I really like the soft blurry effect.

Lovely soft colour of the petals that almost have a translucent look about them

Like Judy, I like the blurry effect it makes the poppies dignified.
