A Friendly Flower at the Zoo..Looks Like a Fried Egg

 

Here are a few photos of this beautiful flower, Matilija Poppy, growing at the San Diego Zoo. This is a native California flower from Ojai, CA in Ventura County.

It is such a lovely flower when it is in full bloom but still just as pretty when the petals bend over and start dying off. The petals look like thin wrinkled crepe paper and have a gold center full of pollen for the bees and insects to enjoy. This flower is also known as the “Fried Egg Flower” as it looks like a sunny-side up egg.

This is my favorite as the center is still facing up to the sky getting sunlight. Mother Nature is so wonderful.
