Becky B’s Bright Square: Roadside California Poppies

#BrightSquare 18 Cee’s Flower of the Day

“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”

Believe it or not we have some beautiful poppies emerging in Prescott, AZ as well as in the California poppy state. Every day I get out with my camera, they close up for the evening. The golden hour for poppies is in the middle of the day.

I caught these beauties on the way back from running errands when I lived in Central California. There were so many along the road and they were so stunning against the unusually bright sky that I pulled over, got out and took several pictures.

    • Thanks, Graham. I do love poppies and all bright flowers. Your flowers today popped with color. I couldn’t believe I missed the little bird because I was so busy admiring the flowers. 🙂

    • I miss you too, Sally and your beautiful yard. I’m sure my yard is as beautiful as ever. 🙂 It was a beautiful place to live and have amazing friends for 20 years.

  1. I definitely miss the California poppies, Marsha. Poppies grew wild in parts of my old neighborhood. I would have had to plant seeds in October to get them to bloom in spring and always forgot. Thanks for reminding me how pretty they are!

In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
