Fried Eggs In The Garden

A silly, shining smile in the summer garden California native Matilija Poppy (Romneya Coulteri) boasts the largest flower of any poppy. A superbly drought tolerant plant these "fried eggs" are native to a small section of Southern and Baja California. It's frilly crepe white blooms have long been one of James' favorites so I was determined to pepper our Northern garden with the fluttering blossoms with no assurance of success. My efforts have started to pay off with this first frilly flower.
