Oh, it's gorgeous!
I was working at Jane Austen House this morning and there are some huge blowsy orange poppies blooming. I've only one in bloom so far: a white one with a deep purple center.

Hope you are well! It's been too long. xx

Poppies are just such lovely, delicate flowers.

Beautiful! Just in time for your sister's visit.

Your poppy looks wonderful, and so do all the supporting plants behind! What is the plant with the two fingery leaves just behind in the last picture?

Nice record of the unfolding: midwifing the poppy, my favorite springtime job when Icelandic poppies come in.

Mary Ann said...

Just stunning. Love the colour.

My mum used to have lots of those poppies in our garden when I was a child. I used to make dolls with them. The seed head would become the head with its readymade cap and a face scratched on, a stick pushed just below the seedhead would be arms and the petals turned downwards would become glossy skirts.

You have a beautiful garden in your yard!

I love poppies - this one is beautiful! Ours isn't quite ready to flower - I shall have to camp in the front garden to watch it unfld like yours. (at least I can now see it from the lounge, as I cleaned the windows yesterday!!)

Mine are nowhere near ready to pop just yet, but I am looking forward to it. Yours is a lovely colour.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Spring very slow here on the Pacific coast...
