Is it June already?

The weather in northern California would certainly have us think otherwise. But today is sunny, and this morning we were greeted with some lovely new blooms in our back garden…

Iceland poppies

Before moving to this house, I’ve never had a pot to plant in, so to speak, so gardening is all new to me. The Other loves poppies (no, not for the opium, silly), and they’re becoming a favorite of mine too—I mean, what beats bizarrely large flowers in loud colors on scrawny, hairy stalks? Moss roses, like the one in the last photo, are another of my new best friends.

Off to do some pruning!
