Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

California poppies in our garden

 

White California poppy

 

I am filled with happiness when the garden explodes with these flowers.  Even if the skies are grey, there is sunshine in the garden, comfort.

    It looks like a great place to gain comfort. (I looked to the screen and was frightened for a moment as the spider walked across my screen.)

    yes to have a garden is comfort! (my cat agrees)

  7. Robin says:

    I hear you… I agree completely. Love when Spring rolls around…

  8. Some brilliant city planner here throws California Poppy seeds on the highway and road embankments to help the soil stay in place. They are gorgeous as you drive along the roads.

    A bonus for us as well is that the deer won’t eat them! Deer are our very own oversize rodents that love to eat everything in the gardens in my neighbourhood!

    i love poppies – they always cheer me

  10. Beautiful colours. We have Welsh poppies in our garden, same colour, maybe they’re just named after the region you are in…
