Poppies!
Poppies!

They’re almost the same color as the mystery flower from a few days ago.  So vivid it seems painted rather than natural, yet so right against the scrubby, weedy-looking foliage and [unfortunately] parched brown earth.  It’s fun to see them open or close depending on the sun.  The California state flower is also known as la amapola, copa de oro, and Eschscholzia californica.  How’s that for Wikipedia?
