Such a lovely site to see, Mexican Poppies blooming in southwest New Mexico at Rockhound State Park. I could not resist these luscious & delicate wild flowers against the wonderful texture of the rock….

    We call these Californian poppies in Oz, they are really lovely, great shot

  • Many thanks Suellen!!! I’m not sure if they are the same or just very close. These wildflower blooms seem to only happen in the very southern regions of our state, where it is rare to have a wet enough winter for the dormant seeds to germinate. I fell in love with these lovely and delicate wildflowers….. Vicki :)
