Hodgepodge 165/365 - Superbloom

We have reluctantly decided not to make the drive to the Carrizo Plain where a superbloom of wildflowers is occurring.

Busy lives . . .

However, here at 830 Altura we have a superbloom of our own going on on a small scale:

California poppies, plus some flowering herb (the purple):
the poppies are closed up for the day, taking shelter from the wind

The yard is a riot of poppies. Just gorgeous! But in the days to come I will be removing many of them from our raised beds, in order to plant edibles—which will bring sensory pleasures of their own, if in a different way. Getting a bit of a late start because of my travels, but as they say, better late than never. Fortunately, our growing season is long.
