Sadhvi Loves Poppies!


It’s the 4th of July tomorrow, so before the summer is over, I want to share some pictures of the poppies that came up this spring in my garden.

I think I might have one or two that are blooming right now, but most are gone.  I’ve seen a couple of birds eating the seeds out of the pods, which helps the seeds to spread.   I always save some seeds to give to others…there is always more than enough poppy seeds to go around!

I picked my favorite pictures so I hope you enjoy them.  For me, having some joy in my life is important.  I don’t think I would be still around at 52 if I didn’t!  So I have planted my garden only with the flowers that make me happy.  It’s one of the main reasons that I love living in Western North Carolina.  It has such a long growing season.  Oh, one of the best sources of poppy seeds to plant is the online store onestoppoppyshoppe.  Seriously, this is the place to go and get you some poppy seeds!  They have an amazing selection…just looking through their online store is a simple delight!

So, on with the show…it really was a spectacular season of poppies!


About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Your poppies are very beautiful! You were right as I really enjoyed them. Glad to see you are keeping your hands in the ground. Would love to see you sometime in the near future:-)

  2. Sadhvi. I always look forward to seeing photos of your poppies. Thank you for sharing them.

  3. hi lisa, you could have a container/pot garden. as long as you have some sun, and can keep an eye on watering…i planted some poppy seeds in some clay pots this year…thinking that they would make a good birthday present for somebody. they DO bloom, but the blooms will be smaller. since the magic is in the opening of the flower, not knowing what color it will be, or which type, i think you will get a good dose of the joy that comes from growing them!

  4. Wonderful pictures. Wish I could have a garden… I’ve got a few pots… Thanks for posting this.
