Yes folks, I am in love with Poppies. I know that once you hear the word Poppies visions of Dorothy, Scarecrow and Tin man skipping through a field of bright orange comes to mind.
And while I do love the orange Poppies. . . Oh, there is so much more!
All of these beauties growing in my garden have given me so much delight!
The orange poppies are starts that I brought from my Highland home. They were given to me by a dear man who use to cut wood for me.
This is the second year for my white ones. The blooms are so large and beautiful!
I am not sure where the Salmon poppy came from. Just showed up in my garden last year. What a nice surprise. The bees think so too.
My red one was new this year and I am loving it!
I also had a little fun with pic monkey using different effects. You might say I was just monkeying around.
What do you think? Kind of fun, right.
Guess what? I may have a new pale pink poppy next year. Hubby and I visited a public garden in S.L.C. There was a beautiful pink poppy. I just happened to notice that two of the flowers were spent. I plucked the seed pods and brought them home with me. Hopefully, that is not stealing. If so, I am sorry and please forgive me.
My passion for poppies made me do it!
How about you, do you love Poppies?
Now I would like to show you the darling Garden give away I won at Tracie’s from Fishtail Cottage
