SEASONS – April Poppies

If you’re looking for my weekly post FROM ONE THING TO ANOTHER, it’s right underneath this one!


SmallSeasons2SpringSunset_4269 copy                      Hello SEASONS Bloggers,
Thanks to several of you about the input about the bird houses!  This week people contributed to Earth Day, Australia: ANZAC DAY and Next Sunday it’s MAY!
Two weeks ago a friend from Pennsylvania called us they had a new pack of about 4 inches of snow as well as snow in several other states, Austin TX had a 12 inch flood,  and in some very fortunate states like California flowers are blooming, the sun shining. In India a heat wave  of 104 degr. F claimed 160 lives.

I know it’s not fair! But we’ll talk later when your flowers are  blooming and my hill sides in California have that ugly brown color (which it looks like most of the year …up till now)!

Just a reminder, Seasons is not only about weather and landscapes, but your experiences, graduations, birthdays, trips, and any other experience during the season are also greatly appreciated!  Everyone who has a blog (not for profit) can join – with one image per week!
By the way, if you click on the black pic (next page) , it is one of the regular participants! Next month I hope I have some (happy)  messy pics to show -you are forewarned:):)

Leaves still in the growing stage. What I like about living in the forest are the large amounts of shade the trees provide. Nice when it gets over a 100 degrees F.:)

Poppies are the state flower of California (Every state has its own flower). Seen along the wayside and hills now everywhere. When they’re so close together, I don’t want to take a side view,and trample some others.
The orange poppies are more common here than the red ones.




Down Town Sutter Creek, half an hour away which was one  of the towns
along Highway 49, the main vein of the Gold Rush, that made the “Californian Dream” so famous!
Forgot to look, but I don’t think those flowers are real, lol.



Oleander -blooming almost all year in California in various colors-  very common as road side landscaping
Not advisable where  kids are around. Everything on this plant is extremely poisonous.

HAPPY PASSOVER for the ones who celebrate it!

Am putting up this post early, to remind you that the photo link for SEASONS  opens on Sunday April 24 – 12:01 am and runs to Wed. April 27 – 7pm Pacific time.

  1. Absolutely wonderful Jesh, beautiful photos, beautiful flowers. Thank you so very much for linking with Today’s Flowers. My heart goes out to all those who are suffering right now. They will always be in my thoughts.


  2. Beautiful photos! I like the poppies. Here in Sweden you can find blue and orange poppies too. You can buy russian poppies which get several colours on the same plant. Along the wayside are just red ones. Have a nice day!


  3. The easiest for me to think of you would allways be, if you want to link to my saturday-linky or at wednesdays (both are opened the whole week) too, my dear blogfriend!
    Have a nice day, herzlich P.


  4. Started reading your Warm Heart post yesterday and was interrupted. Now I don’t know how to get back to it. However, I enjoyed this post with all the beautiful pictures. I’d love to live in a forest. It always amazes me when people here cut down nice big trees. We need the shade because of the heat. Yes, those flowers probably weren’t real, but the water pump probably isn’t real either. 🙂


  5. I think of the yellow ones as California poppies — the red ones are “just” poppies! Either way I enjoy them. The yellow ones are starting to be abundant in Oregon too — I guess they migrated north! Loving your Spring. Thanks for hosting!


  6. Hello again, I came back to thank you for linking my post Jesh. So kind of you 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your day. The sun is shining here and it is quite warm, so we’re all very happy.


  7. We do not see poppies here in April. I love the orange poppies and red ones as well. Liked your photos. No oleanders in NC that I have seen but plenty of them in Fl when we lived there.

    Thank you for helping me with my photos. I will report that the Wine Barrels and Reflections are the most chosen with the Stone Wall not far behind.

    Happy Blue Monday.


  8. Your hills look nice and green Jesh, and the flowers are beautiful! Our 2 feet of snow melted in 4 days and now everything is also blooming here.


  9. are so lucky to live in a forest. Do you get to see many wild animals? That oleander flower is beautiful. Didn’t know about it. So, thank you for sharing.


  10. Flowers are in abundance here right now. Although this week has been much cooler than our record breaking 80 degree weather from last week. – Love your wonderful photos. Those trees are lovely. Such pretty flowers, the Oleander is so delicate looking. Enjoyed your post.


  11. Lovely shots, Jesh! I like the single, pink oleander – so much nicer I feel than the double hybrids.
    Thank you for joining us at the Floral Friday Fotos meme, I look forward to your next contribution.
