Hello, and welcome to my first post on the Oops50 blog. My name is Sadhvi, and I want to share secret recipes, things that are useful, and things that make me happy.
At this time of year, something that will make me happy very soon is one of my favorite flowers, the poppy!
I have hundreds of them that are getting ready to open. And I can’t wait. Even saying their names (like “Early Grey” and “Watermelon”) makes me smile.
I love looking at poppies. Maybe it’s because they are so shy and unassuming before they open up. I almost don’t even see the buds! Maybe it’s because they don’t last for long. Or maybe it’s because each one makes me stop and be filled with wonder and awe.
The anticipation is a wonderful experience…that’s the great aspect of planting from seed! I like to take pictures of my poppies so that when I share the seeds with family and friends, they know what to expect.
These wonderful flowers are so special that everyone should have some in their garden. Like any flower or living thing, if you give them what they need, they will flourish.
