Eschscholzia Californica - California Poppy by 

Selected as the State flower of California in 1890

Hardy Annuals … if you’ve collected seeds from them it’s not too late to sow them this year for next year’s crop or alternatively wait until the spring next year. Mostly they are yellows and oranges, but occasionally a pink or red one may appear amongst them.

This is several thousand miles away from California in Lancashire NW England.

I’m not sure how this has turned out in the colours it has, but this is how it’s come off the memory card.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

  • Thank you, Linda. I like the colours even though I don’t know how they got there. Looks like they’re growing in a fish tank :)
