I forgot my poppies!


In my tour of the garden, I forgot my poppies! They are the most exciting part of this spring for me. For the past 20 years I have tried on and off to grow Flanders Poppies, with zero success. This year, I have had several plants survive the winter and give me flowers this spring. :-)
They are all different. Although they are all bright red petals, their centres are all individual.
These flowers have been endlessly fascinating for me, and I have taken huge pleasure in each and every bloom.



  1. Michelle, I was surfing and just came across these gorgeous photos that took my breath away. Poppies are so beautiful but your photography skills are amazing!
