    I love my Poppies!

    This year my Poppies have had such a wonderful showing, even with all the rain! Just thought I'd share a little collage I made up of a few photos and a quote by John Keats:

    "Through the dancing poppies stole; A breeze most softly lulling to my soul

    Enjoy!

    I 'love' poppies. I have those same light pink ones in my garden. To me, it looks like the Creator took his 1" wide paint brush and stroked a few brushes from the center out, on the inside of the flower.

    One of my favorite flowers. I like them so much my kitchen is accented with poppy red. Your collage is wonderful.
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful blooms.

    These are gorgeous. Do you know if they can be planted now or do they have to be planted in the fall? I am so wanting to plant poppies in our landscape this year.
