What’s not to love about poppies? The soft ruffles of the paper-thin petals…the subtle sorbet hues…the interesting pods…all parts are love-worthy!

Looking at all these poppies makes me excited for spring…it’s usually the first flower to pop up in my garden after a long flowerless winter…

Happy Tuesday!



  1. One of my very favorite flowers! I wish that I would have access to them; they rarely have them at the flower market, and when they do, they often were cut prematurely. If anyone knows of a good source, please let me know!
