My favourite flowers!

I wait every year until these come into bloom! They are my absolute favourites of all the ones we have in our garden. I love single poppies of any variety, but these are just so spectacular!!
When DH and I had our sanity day last week, we found a delightful painting of poppies and spoiled ourselves (well, me actually...he doesn't care what's on the walls!). It's residing under the bed until our 30th anniversary in the fall OR until the bedroom gets repainted, whichever comes first. I can pretty much guarantee the anniversary will happen before the painting!

So unusual and beautiful. I love the poppy seed pods too. I always wanted to make an art quilt of poppies and seed pods. Maybe you could email me a photo of each, hint hint. You have such a lovely garden.

That pink poppy is to die for. I don't have enough son except on my front lawn to grow sun loving flowers. Only shade ones live here. I am envious.
