California poppy

California poppy, originally uploaded by inyopfc.

California poppy (Eschscholzia californica, whew!) is one of the easiest plants to grow in this climate, blooms for months, and the petals are the second softest thing ever. (feel them next time you see this plant!) Also, despite popular belief, it isn't illegal to pick these flowers... but it is a bad idea, because who wants to kill a poppy?
