California poppy surprise

ca poppy wet
With my community garden plot, I've had numerous gardening surprises due to the previous gardener, who left a legacy of interesting plants.  I was told she was cultivating a moon garden, with only white or very light flowers allowed. And so, not surprisingly, the California poppies that bloom every year aren't the brilliant and blinding orange but rather a dreamy cream color.

I don't mind. I take care to save seeds each year so I can keep this ongoing.
