I was walking past a house only a few blocks from my own with the dogs this morning and I noticed these flowers in bloom. They are large, maybe five inches across, and have the look of a large poppy but I am not certain that is what they are. Some of the forms are quite similar but the colors are different. Something like those of an egg cooked sunny-side up. I love the crinkled leaves, the dusting of pollen on the petals, the rich golden color. It is a visual treat.
