This is one of the first Poppies I saw in bloom this season. I spied it all alone while on a “stretching my legs” hike a few weeks ago.
It’s Easter on Sunday and I’ll be spending the day with family. I hope you all have a lovely week-end, and a wonderful Easter if you celebrate it.

Thank you so much Donna!
Beautiful find and capture! I love poppies … they may be my very favorites. I am waiting to see if my poppies come up in my perennial garden. I purchased some Oriental Poppies and also grew some California Poppies from seed. Fingers crossed!
I hope both types bloom for you!
Thank you so much for the lovely comment Denise!
That poppy is so pretty Deborah. I hope that you and your family had a lovely Easter! 🙂
Thank you so much Amy!
I hope you had a nice Easter! The flower is just lovely.
Thank you so much Antonia! Easter was fun. I hope your family had a lovely Holiday too.
I have not seen any poppies to speak of this year either, I enjoy seeing the orange ones!
Me John! I have a friend who moved up to WA state a few years ago who emailed me after seeing my image to say he never thought he’d miss orange poppies til he didn’t see them anymore. 🙂
Beautiful, Deborah. This is a favorite color of spring. I only think of poppies in red, so this was particularly exciting. Welcome spring and Happy Easter!
Thank you so much Jennie! Happy Spring and Easter to you and yours!
You are welcome, Deborah!
Beautiful poppy, Deborah! i’ll start celebrating Easter on Friday:): Wishing you a lovely Easter weekend!
This was such a pretty colored poppy! Thank you for both the floral beauty and the wish for us.
Hope you have a special Easter, hugs, candy, flowers and family! 🐤🐇
Thank you so much Robin!! xx
You’re so welcome, Deborah! Your comments on my blog we’re so nice! xo
I love that colour
It’s so cheerful isn’t it. Thank you so much Pauline!
California poppies are my favorite. I was able to grow them in my backyard. Happy Easter, Deborah.
Thank you so much John! I’ve never tried to grow them myself. Do they grow in TX?
Oh no. They barely grow in California. Real tough to get started and yet they do well in the wild. Sort of like Texas Bluebells.
Oh, I didn’t know they’ve hard to grow in a yard. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Texas Bluebells.
They are stunning.
Wow that is so beautiful!
Thank you so much Lynn!
So pretty, what color
Lovely first poppy! Happy Easter Deborah.
Thank you Belinda! Happy Easter to you as well!
So pretty! I hope you have a beautiful weekend, Deborah 🙂
Thank you so much Joey! I wish you and the family a lovely Holiday week-end too!
OH how lovely this is! Poppies are a favorite of mine and California Poppies always seem particularly special.
Thank you so much Melissa! They’re such a cheerful flower I think. 🙂
Orange poppies I don’t see that often. Very nice! Spring finally is here. 🙂
Thank you Peter! So you have the red Iceland Poppies there?
My knowlegde of flowers is virtually non existant. When thinking of poppies I imagine the wild roadside flowers that indeed mostly are red. After googling a bit I learn poppies are also cultivated and come in a large variety of colours! I suppose we might very well have those cultivated poppies over here, but yes, I did mean the red ones 🙂
Happy Easter Deborah. Hope you have a lovely time with your family.
Nice to see some spring flowers. It will be a while before we see any here 🌷
Thanks Joanne! I hope it’s not too much longer before you start seeing flowers pop up.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
It’s beautiful, Deborah. Thanks for sharing your spring color. I hope you have a Happy Easter.
Thank you for the lovely comment Dan! I wish you and the family a lovely Easter too!
