A golden poppy that managed to root itself in an irrigated flower bed is blooming in my back yard. A couple of other poppy plants near the flower bed have buds on them. They are evolving intelligence! They now know how to get humans to give them water during the dry summer!

I must obey the poppies! They will soon rule the world! Everyone must plant poppies!
