When we visited Eartheart we were entranced by the beauty of Sharon Whitney's gardens and growing fields of Japanese irises mixed with poppies. During the last 14 years we've visited many nurseries of many types of flowers and most seemed to be very unappealing rigid soldier straight lines so this was a rare treat.

I'd love to have an idea or an I.D. on these red poppies. Thank you.

Thank you, John. If I don't get the seeds soon I'll take you up on your kind offer.

Here's a white one - also at Eartheart. Is it the same type? Thanks.

It was not a wonderful day here either. It's downright nasty outside. No sleet but constant light rain: good for all my recent plantings but not so good for the spirits.

When I said it was sleeting, I was torn as to whether to say snowing. Well it did end up snowing and we have 3" out there now. First snow of the season.

We didn't get any, thankfully, but it still feels like winter outside for the first time this season.

cowgirl and Jo Ann - such beautiful poppies! It would be hard to select just a few and I'm so grateful to those who sent me seeds.

Thank goodness for our pictures! In winter they are worth all the time we've put into them! : ) I think winter seems longer every year! Maybe it is a sign we should be somewhere warmer! lol

That's why most people up here in the north do what Donnie Brooks do and only ' fly south in the winter' Lol that's what I want to do someday.

I understand that long winter feeling...My DW says my you are busy (going to the gym , walking Daisy, cleaning bathroom, taking out recyclables, buying a new computer chair and puttting it together , cleaning and sharpening pruners and planting more seeds). All I really want to do is get out there and get my hands in some dirt...

Amen John.I am sick of snow.I was having so much fun during the January thaw we had.
Now its all white again and I cant walk around the garden.Even feeding the birds is an effort thru the snow.
