I live in Sacramento, CA.
Last year, I tilled the soil and spread a large bag of flower seeds, with much success...
At then end of the year I cleaned up the dead flowers, and now some are coming back, or are they?
Here are is a picture of one. It has an orange flower growing, that closes at night. It seems as though this is the predominant plant it a weed or flower? It look's like a poppy...

Many thanks!

That's a California poppy.

A "weed" is a plant you do not want growing where you do not want it to grow. In some instances a Rose could be a "weed" while a Dandelion is a cash crop. It depends on your perspective.

Thank you both!
