poppies!


You might remember that I acquired a lot of poppy seeds via one of the members of the garden club last fall and scattered them around the old burn pile spot. They have been nothing short of spectacular for the last couple of weeks though my snake bite kept me indoors for the first three or four days after the 'incident'. Towards the end of last week Marc took me for a couple of joyrides in the antique wheelchair across the lawn so that I could enjoy them. Now armed with crutches, I can get out there by myself and do though I don't always pick the best time of day for pictures. Anyway, here's a little photo essay of the poppies.

I love poppies - they are so vibrant yet delicate. My neighbour grows a lot but they won't be flowering for another month or so over here.
Fab photos!

They're lovely. You'll have a nice green hillock when the blooms are done.

Spectacular! This from "scattering them around the old burn pile spot?"

That must be great soil...the results are picture perfect!

I tried to have poppies for years but the darn ants always stole the seeds. Yes, I tried starting them first but I have a brown thumb.
