Frivolous Fridays – July 13th!

Garden pictures!

There is a plant that grows really well around here called the Matilija Poppy.  They don’t need a lot of water and they are one of the showiest, if not the showiest native flowers we have around here.  It is a pain in the butt to get growing because its root system doesn’t like to be moved and it is hard to propagate.  But, once it takes root it grows like crazy.  We have one in our backyard and our neighbor says she has flowers growing through the walls of her garage.  But is it pretty with big crinkly flowers that look like a fried egg.  These are as big as your hand, though I hear there is another one with flowers the size of dinner plates.  They don’t last long, but they are gorgeous while they are around!

About ocdreader

I love to read! I always have a book or four going, I have more books in my to-be-read pile than I can read in a year and yet I continue to haunt the bookstores. I have a problem, but I somehow soldier on. I enjoy talking books, so pass on your recommendations and thoughts - I would love to hear them.
