I think it was 2 years ago that we bought a flat of red and white poppy starters and planted them around the yard. The first year they did nothing, then died back. The next year they didn’t return so we assumed they were gone, but then this spring we were surprised to see them sprouting up steadily with the rest of the spring plants. And now we have a dozen or so poppy heads just about to flower, and two that have blossomed already; both the White Oriental Poppy. Wow, they were worth the wait! So beautiful!!
I can’t wait to see the red ones as well, and collect as many seeds as I can in the fall! I want these things everywhere <3<3<3
