We are many weeks behind on the other coast. my poppies should look just like yours, but they only have small unopened buds at this point. Doesn't bode well for tomatoes this year.

Hi - gorgeous pictures you have here! Do you know the name of those orange poppies?

They were growing in a garden at our old house but after moving we have never been able to find them again (or figure out their actual name). Thank you!
