Baby has one stylin' poppy-colored hat! Yeah, he's probably not too into flowers yet. Just wait, he'll get there! Sweet.

Now thats a big bloom!

Aaah, you are going to need a large assortment of baby bonnets to keep up the charming colour coordination. I see little August is getting her first lesson in the difference between a weed and a pretty garden flower. Wow, the flower is as large as her head. Soon, she will be dead heading and weeding like a pro.

Uh, August is a boy, Northern Shade. Read the fine print.


I ordered an orange poppy similar to yours, but it's tiny and there's no flower. Yours is unbelievably gorgeous! How long does it take to reach that size? Cheers!


You might have a different poppy if the flower is smaller. There are a million types and sizes. These are Papaver orientalis and the plants are 3 years old. I ordered them from Bluestone Perennials.

Fine looking landscape garden plants.

Someday, I'm going to learn how to work with those. I've been intimidated in the past, from adding them in landscape designs. Even my own garden.

But there sure are a lot of nice ones around here - especially in some of the NE Portland landscapes.

The picture of the water droplets on the leaves is so clear and vivid. I felt as if I we standing right over the plant.
