A sunny day on the North Coast of California

I took my new camera out in our yard to see what nature is offering on this gorgeous day. As you can see, it is quite a lot:

This sunflower is a "volunteer" that just sprung up. Maybe from old birdseed?
We will have strawberries, if the birds don't get them first.
Another "volunteer", this one an opium poppy. It comes up every year or so, in a different place each time. You can see the pollen in this one.
These petunias are a return from some my wife got last year. They made it through the winter . . . .
A rose by any other name would look as beautiful.
Day lily by day.
A truly wild iris, growing near our pond. 
We should also have a nice blackberry crop this year.
My wife planted some zucchini plants in a new part of our garden. On the left in this picture is a volunteer cilantro.
A bee doing what it does in a poppy.
There's a reason people compare fuchsia flowers to ballerinas.
