We have had a really good monsoon season this year! It's been wet enough to coax the early spring poppies to bloom! When we get enough fall and winter rain, they bloom in March through April. Usually, there isn't enough rain for that to happen, and we get a modest bloom every few years or so.
We didn't get a bloom this spring, but boy howdy, they came in August! Here they are, as of last week- a little tattered and wilting with rain in the last weeks of the monsoon season in September.
