More California Gold


I love orange flowers, California golden poppies most of all. They draw and keep my eyes with a power unlike any other color or blossom. These images are of some of the poppies in our front yard. My eyes are often treated to, and sometimes enthralled by, their beauty.

With Love,

    They are gorgeous, indeed a feast for the eyes. I love poppies, also my dad loved them so much and I always think of him seeing poppies.

      “A feast for the eyes” is a good way to describe them. I think my children will think of me when the see poppies too. That makes the flowers even more special to me.
