Hope I don't hog the forum with my photos. If I do, someone just tell me to shut up !I didn't have any poppies last year as I had moved and didn't have much of a garden, so this is my first year to have poppies at my new house. Sorry to say I only have reds and pinks , no lavenders.

my "poppy garden" --- I had mostly reds in this first bed and now mostly pinks in the bed to the left of the red bed. Of course these are actually daylily beds and I have so many poppies that I have worried about them smothering out my daylilies. I bet I have pulled up an easy 200 plants before they even bloomed !!!! I didn't realize I put out so many seeds !!!

ge1836 - thanks -- mine are almost finished. We got 5" of rain yesterday - downpours- and it beat my poppies to death !! Sure made more "naked" ones in my garden :) Just think , when mine are finished and pulled up, you will have beautiful blooms for us southern folks to envy !

most of my reds are gone. All of my photos are beginning to look alike.(guess that is why I love daylilies !) and I promise you these are different flowers. I would love to pull them all up now so my daylilies will get plenty of sleep but it will be some time yet before they are ready to be pulled up.

Pirl, Select Seeds

http://www.selectseeds.com

They have a wonderful selection of all kinds of poppies ... as well as sweetpeas ... well, everything! They specialize in heirloom varieties.

And, you can save your seeds then from year to year, or simply let the poppies self-sow, which is what I've done this year.

My poppies are,sadly, almost gone due to pounding rains. Hate to see them go , but they are in my daylily beds and I need the space (and sun !!!) for my daylilies to grow. All things have their season...

mrs cola, your video was wonderful ! I,too, love nature. I am sadly giving up my poppy beds to make way for my beloved daylilies. I tried to have both of them in the same beds this year, but the poppies almost smothered out the daylilies !

I do hope some poppy seeds I scattered around the edges of my yard will come up through the grass/weeds, but I doubt it. I LOVE my poppies,too. They are so stunning in the spring !

That is part of one bed and I had another right beside that one - both just full of poppies from dark red to pinks to corals and a few lavenders. I loved them BUT they actually smothered a few of the daylilies in those beds. I never dreamed I would have so many come up ! Since I moved my daylily space ( all garden space) is so limited that I give up so many of my other flowers.

Before I moved I had a fellow master gardener tell me that I had more species of plants in my yard than she had seen anywhere around. Not anymore. I lost most of them during the move.Then my dear hubby told me he was NOT digging me that many flowerbeds ever again !!!!! I was too broken down to care for them by myself and he didn't want to have to help me with it. So... I have a few daylily beds, some hydrangeas, and a few other things scattered around.

I will be hoping for some poppies around my yard this spring but I just threw seeds in the edge of the yard along where hubby doesn't mow. Whether they will come up in the weeds is yet to be seen !!!

If I lose all my poppies, I hope some one on here will take pity on me and share with me at the end of the season. Maybe I will have some kind of seeds to trade by then.

I planted a lot of seeds in with my asiatic lilies. I hope they won't smother them!

Your picture is beautiful. I sure hope I get a good showing. I expect I will from where the seeds came from :)

PS, I remember you from years ago. You haven't been on for a long time? Something happened?

What else did you lose during the move? I don't have many daylilies, but I might be able to replace something else.

I can understand where your husband is coming from, especially since he had to do some of the work, but he has to understand for some of us, gardening is a huge part of our lives.

I dream of big poppy patches this year, especially for my Granddaughter Jenna's cutting garden. What fun she had last year, searing the stems when we cut them. She's 8, and to be able to do that was big fun, so of course she wanted poppies all the time in her bouquets.

Those larkspur are gorgeous! Tall, wow!

Your larkspur looked lovely in that grouping, Jo Ann.

luv,luv,luv your larkspur !!!!! I had a few but they all came up in the pathways instead of in the beds. I told everyone that they just had to step around them because I was NOT pulling them up !!!! Now I've forgotten (now that you brought up the subject) where I put my larksput seeds !!!!!!

pollyk - yes, I 've been on here before with my poppies. First we had my mother-in-law to die right after Christmas in 2007, then in 2008 we moved to north Mississippi to live by my mom so I can now help care for her. She lives by herself (she is 82) but I can see "the big A" , as we call it in our family, creeping up on her every day. I do all her driving but don't know how much longer she will be able to live at home. We will let her stay there as long as we can.She has always been such an independent person that,when the time comes, we will have a struggle to get her to leave her house. She loves to garden ,too, and sometimes I think that is what keeps her going. All winter we talk about what the garden will look like in the spring ! I now live on the land that was hers, and before that, her parents. 59 acres that has no value to anyone but my family.Gardening has always been in our blood.

I don't recall you specifically from poppies, but just from DG.

Sorry to hear of all your heartaches. So much going on can really depress. Bless your Mom that at 82 she still loves to garden.

Well, with 59 acres, you have ROOM. Let me know in the spring if there is anything you need, and I will try to get some poppy seeds for you next year.

Corgimom, I sent you a few packets of poppy seeds at the end of the summer ... you got them, right? I know I got the seeds you sent me, and will sow them in spring (hoped to do some in the fall, but ... time just creeps away ...)

Take heart and take care, and take strength from your lovely gardens and flowers and whatever it is you are growing!

Just sowed Hens and Chicks from Swallowtail Seed. I doubt they will germinate early.

jubilada- yes I got them, but I am embarrassed to say I can't find them. I moved stuff around after I received them (hiding stuff cause I was gonna have company). They are here somewhere and if I find them i will go ahead and try a few late seeds. I think I moved them to my mom's freezer when our freezer stopped working and I haven't been down there to check.

1836- wow !!! can't believe those hen and chicks.I was thinking"succulents" until I enlarged your pic. How amazing. I need some of those just for a conversation piece.
