One thought on “Celandine Poppy, Wood Poppy

  1. Pretty. The flower resembles the California Poppy which is also brilliant in color, but more a psychedelic orange. And the leaves are lacier in the CA flower, probably because the flower needs very little water and grows in the poorest and sandiest soil. They certainly brighten the dry brown countryside in this part of the world.
