First Flowers

This is my first baby Matilija Poppy.  It's only three feet tall - a grown up plant will be six to eight feet tall. The blooms should be almost a foot across, this one is only four inches. Just a cute little thing.

The photo below was taken on a misty, wet morning.  The weight of the moisture pulled the petals down and I couldn't resist taking the photo from underneath.

The first hollyhock blossom, with many more to come.
