  3. Pretty poppy!I saw poppies growing wild in California in 2008. Is this one of the wild ones?

  4. Hi Marie,
    Thank you. No it's not wild, I have them in my garden. Given to me from cousin Sue and Donna. I was so excited when the first one opened I set up and started painting. I took lots of pictures to finish in the studio. All the best to you.\
