There's something about their papery petals and fuzzy stems that I can't seem to get enough of. I have poppies in many colors in my garden. These are some pictures of a few of last year's blooms. I always seem to be on the look out for the newest color I can add to the borders. The bees love them and I love bees so I will always make room for them in the garden. After they bloom, they go dormant and so I always plant them with something that will grow up and hide the dying foliage. They are so hardy and reliable. When I plant them I have to be sure about the spot because they don't transplant well. But once there in they are almost bullet proof. I planted several new ones this past year so I can't wait till they bloom. The snow is now gone from the
garden so I should see them emerging any time now. Can't wait!
