Nodding Peach Poppies

Nodding Peach Poppies

Ruffled like a twirling dancer’s skirt, the blooms on this California Poppy nod under the weight of their crinkled petals.

I am an avid gardener, cramming precious color, texture, and scent into a small space. I have two small ponds; the koi pond is built on top of half of the cement patio, because who needs a patio when you can have koi and exotic waterlilies occupying the space, right? Things do tend to get a tad crowded due to the space shortage and my continued plant obsession. Plants mingle, intertwine, and sometimes get “eaten” by other, more hardy or vigorous neighbors. Every once in a while, beautiful and unexpected combinations take place all on their own. That is what happened when this charming peach California poppy, Eschscholzia californica ‘Apricot Chiffon’ reseeded and grew next to the fragrant purple Heliotrope I had started from seed several years earlier. I loved the combination of color and texture so much that I decided to document it in this photograph.

    I love the colors and the composition in this one! The lovely background colors really bring out the “charm” of the poppies!
