fun fact of the day the california poppy reproduces by making these really long seed pods when theyre done flowering and then the seed pods explode scattering their seeds everywhere
i think theyr neat
#those are what california poppy seed pods look like?? #wow they look WAY different from the seed pods of the poppies I've got growing in the side garden #so cool!! :D
oh neat, what do your poppies look like?
it's dark out so I only have the pics off my phone from a few days ago but for the flowers themselves:
and the seedpods look like this, but when they're completely ripe/have mature seed they turn brown:
they're a mother-of-pearl poppy seed mix! so far I've had red, white, and kind of a peachy-pink pop up. each flower only lasts for about a day or two, but they're lovely while they're here!
[I have nothing to gain from your judgement. I'm a bystander, a passerby, a witness at most. I have nothing to lose from your judgement. You are the passing breeze, the sound of traffic, a forgotten cup. Putting your judgement in my hands was a poor choice on your part. Taking it a rotten choice on mine. Shall we see what kind of tragedy apathy creates?]
[The taste of lemonade on your lips, homemade but poorly made, too much sugar and not enough lemon. The citrus is a ghost on your tongue and swallowing it down is harsh and gritty. But the ice is soothing against your skin when the heat is beating you down into the dust of the old road people tell you not to wander down.]
last one for now! my mom's double peony bushes are blooming- they're very small bushes, but according to her they were given to me by my great-grandfather, and are probably around 50 years old!
found some wild lily of the valley flowers under the iris tree! :D
City Hall Flowers
I can't remember but I think the last pic is from our city hall. I don't know where else I could have gone to take pics lmao
Service des Travaux Publics (Public Works Services)
Had to include these. Most of the garden pics from our home were comissioned by my dad for a website. I can't remember if it was McGill or not who wanted those but for PW I took these on my own and just for my protection I removed the name of the city because this is near where I live.
These are some pics from a few years ago of our front garden. I can't remember if these were from both or just one because we have two garden in front.
