Surprise Flowers

Our land has approximately zero landscaping, except for some lovely mature fruit trees (several varieties of apples, pears, apricots, plums, cherries, walnuts...) and these beauties, which Matt almost tore out because he thought they were weeds (before they were blooming) - does anyone know what they are?


  1. They are some sort of beautiful poppy! Simply lovely.

  2. That would be the oriental poppy I do believe. Much prettier than the orange ones growing in my yard - somehow the orange ones are like something out of a horror movie. Just like "regular" poppies, they do pretty well on their own.
