Oh! Those Poppies

I blog about these same poppies every May. I hope that continues.

My poppy population gets smaller each year despite my efforts to save and share seed.

I would hate to lose these treasured flowers from an old friend who is no longer here.

Bill Troutman gave me these seeds decades ago.

The singles bloom first, only a few doubles have appeared so far.

I cannot imagine a more beautiful plant, bud, bloom or seed pod.

This is one of my most valued plants.

I hope it will continue to dazzle me every spring forever.

  1. So pretty, esp. when backlit by the sun. I love lettuce-leaf poppies. I have both the red and mauve, which bloom around July 1. I sprinkle seeds around like a salt shaker once the pods mature. Sometimes the bees create a raspberry colored hybrid, but generally I try to keep the two beds separate so as to retain the original colors.
