Mystery Solved!

A few days ago I posted unique and unknown flower “bud” (see post here).

Yesterday I realized they were the orange poppies planted all over our nearby preserve and walking path.

They appear to be California Poppies.

And now we know 😊


“Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof. Take that Poppy seed, for instance: it lies in your palm, the merest atom of matter, hardly visible, a speck, a pin’s point in bulk, but within it is imprisoned a spirit of beauty ineffable, which will break its bonds and emerge from the dark ground and blossom in a splendor so dazzling as to baffle all powers of description.”
