Er...poppies


Yes, I know I promised the end of all the poppy pictures. But you just had to see the supernatural one that flowered this week. Wow.


The one below is growing right next door to the one shown above - it looks like it has had a nervous breakdown on top of a really bad hair day.


Now that I have broken my promise, here are two more poppies at the other end of the spectrum. No nervous breakdowns here - just simple, cool elegance.

I expect nothing less, from a farm so close to Butchard Gardens. It must be genetic...LOL!!!

You know, really, as long as the pictures are pretty, I don't think any of us care what they are...so snap away!

Just like everyone else, don't stop snapping pics! I've learned from your postings that there are quite a few varieties of poppies!

I'm just starting to catch up with everyone's goings ons...
sounds like you may have a pea dilemma! Some of my shell peas are the same way - fat pods, little peas, but, on the otherhand, I've had small pods full of plump peas! Go figure!

Hope you ladies are doing well and enjoying your summer!

Don't even make such silly promises... these gorgeous blooms must be shared!
Thank you.
That first one is amazing.
