Day 62 - Matilija Poppy

Two months! Woohoo! This morning I met with the San Diego Sketchcrawlers at the old cactus garden in Balboa Park behind the Puppet Theater. This garden was designed for the California Pacific Exposition in 1935, so the plants there are large. There were lots and lots of Matilija Poppies blooming. They are native to this area and have huge flowers that look like fried eggs. The flowers are the largest of any plant native to California.
