I love poppies too - we have big pink ones that come up every year here. I didn't plant them but I sure look forward to their pretty blooms!

p3chandan said...

Lovely poppies! I wonder if those poppy seeds sold in supermart can be grown and come out as beautiful as yours. I think I will try to germinate them and see how...

Susie said...

How beautiful and I can't believe how big they are!

NanaK said...

Gorgeous!

Thank you for sharing this is my favourite flower. I have to wait until November here for them to bloom now they are just wee seedlings. I have also received poppy seeds from generous gardener this month.

They are SO pretty. I bought one plant and hope it takes here as I do like these. I've not had luck in the past.

Your header photos are so good. I always enjoy the variety.

They look great! Ours should bloom in about a month or so.

Those are beautiful Darla. I'm expecting them soon. Hope you have a good day.

Darla, your poppies are quite stunning! I love the contrast between the gray-green leaves and the riot of red flowers. I also like that you planted blue flowering plants close by. Nice composition!

These delicate,yet bright flowers are lovely.To me Poppies look like they are made of very thin paper,so delicate.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

They look beautiful! I can't believe how tall they are. It's going to be months before they bloom here.

Randy Emmitt said...

Darla,

Looks like poppy heaven to me. Reminds me I got some free poppy seeds last year, where oh where did I put them?

sherryocala said...

I have three grown from seeds (not a good success rate). I have been amazed at how large they are, and now to see yours that are taller than a fence. Wow! No blooms on mine yet. Yours are very impressive, Darla. I'm wondering how long they last.

One said...

They are pretty. I received poppy seeds from a blogger friend in US. I am tempted to sow them but I know we are not allowed to grow poppies in Malaysia. So to date, it is still left unopened.

Julie said...

How awesome to have poppies blooming for Easter! That is the coolest thing EVER!!!

George said...

These are beautiful poppies. We don't have much blooming in our yard now, so I'm doubly enjoying your blossoms.

Chandramouli S said...

That's an eye-candy! Lovely poppies!

daisy said...

I didn't realize they got that tall! They make me think of "The Wizard of Oz". So pretty!

perennialgardener said...

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Those are nice looking poppies. That reminds me, I have some seeds for double poppies, or something like that. I need to check to see whether it's better to plant them in the dirt, or start them inside. I have some other seeds I need to be starting.
