I love poppies. Yours look particularly stunning with those little blue flowers around them, too, chico!

hubby keeps weed-whacking mine down :sad: He doesn't mean to...he just thinks they look like dandelion leaves as they're coming up. I may just have to buy some more and put them in a fenced garden so he doesn't get the chance to weed-whack 'em.

You're lucky. If that ever happened here, I'd assume we both must've died and gone to hazel heaven.

And they popped well too. I love poppies. Don't have any started here though. One day I will.
I have nothing unusual going on. Just columbine, wisteria (almost done), Jacob's Ladder, Lupine, Sweet William, Blanket Flower. The normal stuff. Love looking at everyone's pics though!

Love 'em

14k...when I come down I'll bring you some Poppies...I have a huge bunch in the main garden and they have to come out once they flower, they take up too much room, sooooooooo, I also have another bunch, if I take them out then I can put the ones in my way over in the other spot....you just solved me a big dilemma

Bonus to boot.....mixed in with the Poppies there is a dark blue Columbine
