poppies, iris and lupine
poppies and iris poppy center
Lots of poppies in bloom this week at our community garden. A beautiful bright red that my camera can’t focus on. (Are they making poppy seed bagels?) Also breathtaking iris and lupine. If I had any talent with paint, I’d set up an easel.

  • Same with me. These flowers are in an apparently abandoned plot next to mine at our community garden. It gets full sun and has very rich soil. I would guess that both of these are the answer. When I grew them at home they had poor soil (not much compost and low nitrogen levels) and part sun. They sure are lovely flowers.

    I absolutely love the combination of the orange-red of the poppy with a purple-blue flower. A field around my house is planted with poppies and blue bachelor buttons, which is just spectacular!
