    One of my favorite color combinations!

  2. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Flowering here too at the moment – I do love these poppies.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I have both mauve and red (and sometimes they cross). So glad they self-sow well. Sadly, not as many bees visiting as in former years. 😦 They used to be teeming with honeybees.

      • Murtagh's Meadow says:

        Honey bees visit mine too – but it’s been quite wet last couple of days but hope to see some soon.

  3. It may be silent but it has a lot of impact.

    Poppies are so beautiful. I have so many different kinds of flowers….so few bees 😓. Lots of Milkweed, so fortunately more bees & other insects are arriving. Happy to see the Hummingbirds very frequently, lately, on flowers & feeders 😍. And Turkeys with chicks! And a Woodchuck, & lots of birds, etc

    What fantastically rich colors, especially next to one another. Quite regal.

  13. Beautiful! Poppies are one of my favorites. I tried to grow blue poppies from seeds this year. The Persian seeds arrived but the Himalayan seeds were confiscated by our government. Anyway, the seedlings were so tiny and delicate they did not make it. I bought a withered yellow poppy from the sale table at Walmart and it gave me many blooms and for a couple of months … I love that plant!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise. Hopefully your yellow poppy will self-sow so you’ll have more next year. If you would like me to send you some red or mauve seeds like I picture here, I’d be happy to. I just sprinkle them on the ground in the fall and thin the seedlings in the spring – very easy.
