Here are the poppies that my mom mentioned in her comment. We’re Californians, so we both have soft spots in our hearts for these. California poppies were the inspiration for my quilt, Shades of C.R. Mackintosh, and of course, the quilt was a gift for my mom and step-dad 🙂
And look, she sent a picture of the Flanders Poppies that inhabit her new town, Eugene, Oregon. They’re everywhere!
