They take up a lot of space, and they only bloom for a few short days, but I can't resist poppies. There's just something about that fantastic color so early in the summer.

Plus, I can cook up some opium right in my kitchen! Ha ha - kidding, DEA, just kidding!

Just absolutely gorgeous! I just LOVE poppies. Your garden is so mature with spaces filled in.

Ours is so full of empty bits waiting for things to grow. We have some orange and some red poppies - they'll probably take over!

That's the hard part - waiting for things to grow. When I first started my shade garden, I planted things too close together, and now every year I have to relocate stuff into new garden areas so that everything will fit!
