Matilija Poppies in Bloom at Bimini Slough Park

California Native Matilija Poppies in Full Bloom

California Native Matilija Poppies in Full Bloom

Second in a scintillating series on flora and fauna of the Bimini Slough Ecology Park – Oh Boy!

I mentioned them in the comments of the last post about the Bimini Slough Ecology Park, so here are a few shots of the Matilija Poppies. Matilija are native California poppies – actually a really tough, nearly-invasive (look out – they spread and get big!) plant… with big dainty beautiful yellow and white flowers. (See the earlier post for some explanation of the park, links, and more second rate photos from Joe’s cell phone.)

They’re in full bloom right now – at the east end of the park. In the background of these photos you can kinda see the opening where the park’s creekbed enters the storm drain system.

They Look Like Sunny-Side-Up Eggs, Don't They?
