In the garden: Poppies after the rain

At least they're holding still!

Finally, the wildflowers are coming in; I expect them to keep blooming through the fall and it will be super if they reseed themselves. I like red poppies better than orange ones, though. Even if the orange reminds me of monk's robes.)

This flower is orange, too, but what's with the green spike?

The frondy poppy foliage is pretty too, as a backdrop. It's fun to watch the poppies open and close in the sun, or, rather, see that they have opened, or closed. Actually watching would be a fun slow motion project.
