Winter cheer

The weather's been cold and drizzly so a little cheer me up is in order. Here are some pictures of poppies we planted by seed last summer. Actually they were in a package of wildflower seeds but they became the predominate flower. Also included are pictures of the oriental poppy, Papaver orientale, can't tell you what species. The orange one was a show stopper. Drivers would stop to take a look. Even people not normally interested in plants like our college neighbor's girlfriend asked what kind of flower it was.

I bought some oriental poppy seeds from Swallowtail Seeds . Pretty cheap and they shipped quickly. We can't wait to plant and see what the blooms will be like this summer.
