california wild flowers

Yvonne helps us to plan out a sustainable garden, so we supposed to plant some wild poppies to fill out the rest of land. I found a pack of seeds, named “California wild flowers” in a nursery closed to my house. Totally excited! Such a luxury experience to have a back yard and to sow the seeds. We sowed the seeds right before the Christmas, and we were so worried about these little lives when the temperature dropped suddenly. We started to notice some little spouts 3 weeks ago. Oh,yehhhhhhhhhh!! Since then they are doing better and better. I can’t wait to see them blooming in the spring or summer.
