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!
