    1. Yes ma’am. Will do. Not sure where we put them, but we’ll find a place. There is always a place for poppies. 🙂

  1. Zzzzzzzz….Oh! Sorry. Thought I was in Oz for a moment there. What a range of colors! I love these little tissue paper flowers and hope I can grow them some day when I’ve got access to more sunshine.

    1. You put the song in my head, Grower. Something like….. “we get up a noon and go to work at one. Take an hour for lunch and then at two we’re done. Hah! Jolly good fun. Yo ho ho. Yah hah hah….” And so on. Life in the Land of Oz. I love these little tissue paper flower too. They are having a GREAT YEAR!

  2. Poppies are so beautiful but also useful! I love to bake with poppy seeds! 🙂

    1. That’s a good idea. I have never harvested them for baking, but it seems like there would be plenty this year. 🙂

  3. So weak and so lovely the little poppy 🙂 Je veux dire par là que la fleur semble peut-être fragile et éphémère, mais son port est gracieux et noble. J’aime la légèreté et la puissance des couleurs. Le jardin et la profusion des fleurs est vraiment magnifique !!!

    1. Weak and lovely, yes. You hit the nail on the head, so to speak. J’aime la qualité fragile et ephemral. Avec un groupe, ils sont succès. Seuls, ils sont perdus. La variété des couleurs est chanceux et heureux. Je suis très heureux que vous les aimez. Merci Christiane. 🙂

    1. Thanks. It is a curious combo, vibrant yet short lived. The good news is that I planted them in succession this spring so they just keep coming. It’s fun! 🙂

    1. OH thanks. Glad to hear the fence is serving its purpose. We only constructed it about a month ago. It has several purposes, one of which is to provide a visual background for that part of the gardens. I’m glad you like it. Thanks! 🙂

    1. Well, me personally – I’m pretty bland, so it is good you ask about the poppies. 🙂 I’d say “what you see is what you get.” Theses poppies come from seeds I purchased from the Vermont Wildflower Farm. Not much money for an amazing number of viable seeds. I ordered “red poppies” but am delighted to see some variety. I especially like how the centers are different colors and textures. Have a fine day Cynthia. I have many red, quite a few white and just a few blue flowers blooming for our day of celebrating American independence.

      1. I planted the first bunch on April 4 and then planted them every two weeks for the next six, for a total of eight plantings (in different places.) I’m hoping we have poppies through much of the summer. The first batch bloomed for the post “Hello Poppy” on June 13. That’s a couple months, though the April 4 batch had to weather the slow, cold spring.

    1. Yes indeed. I’m with you on both counts. I have thought of crepe paper a bit around them. Thanks. Have a great day! 🙂

    1. Thanks Amy. They do present themselves generously for the purpose of picture taking, which is nice as it enables me to share. I’m pretty sure the poppies approve. Cheers. 🙂

    1. Thanks Tilly. We are lucky with having plenty of space. That said, we have worked hard for it, as this place was quite shady and severely overgrown when we bought it. I have put in many hours with a chainsaw creating the situation wherein these delicate little poppies can thrive. It’s working and it’s worth it. Plus, I like the land reclamation work anyhow. Cheers. 🙂

    1. You are welcome. Delightful and uplifting is good. Very good. Glad you appreciate it. Have a wonderful day! 🙂
