poppies in may

Poppies-in-May































earlier this month I posted a poppy picture from last summer's garden. I had written what I would imagine I would find when this years bloomed. I was so completely wrong. just look at these! the sun was shining so brightly when I snapped this photo. I have never seen this little patch in my garden so beautifully illuminated like this before. and I almost didn't check the garden yesterday morning! it makes me shudder when I think of how close I came to missing out on this display of beauty. I hope you like them as much as I do. happy thursday everyone.

Poppies are fabulous! I just read the "this old farm" blog, also on her poppies. I must go out and get some today.

I don't know if I've ever seen a mixed colored poppy before. They're so pretty! :-)

I'm glad everyone liked them as much as I did.
These are actually one color poppies. the sunlight and shadows make them appear multi-colored. It was pretty neat to see the sun work its magic in this way.
