California Poppy

This California Poppy greeted me at the back door yesterday when I came home from running errands. My friend, Karen, had left it there "because it is your color". I LOVE California Poppies - the colors are so varied and the texture so papery, and the leaves and stems are so wispy.

I did this in my Moleskine with colored pencils, in my jammies, in bed.

Tomorrow I am holding a Tree Workshop from 10:00 to 4:00, so today I'm getting things ready - like running off some handouts and cleaning the bathroom! I have a good group lined up - it's going to be fun!
