A short walk around my house - not even venturing more than 50 yards in any direction - led me to these flowers. Some are wildflowers, some are cultivated - but they're all beautiful.
The ones to the left grow wild, and come up in large numbers each spring around the trees in my front yard. I don't know what they're called.
These are California poppies, I believe. (If I'm wrong, let me know!)
In my neighbor's yard
Same type of flower, different color
More columbines, but with yellow centers
