I love the salmon color. Mine are more orange and dark yellows.

I grew them from seed last year and they bloomed all season. They are already full of buds again this year and I can't wait for them to pop.

I do hope to have these hang around as well. Unfortunately, rabbits stand up and cheer when I plant them.

These were started in the basement. They wilted and looked really sorry when first planted out. I am interested to see how they do now that hot weather is on the way.

My Iceland poppies are still putting out blooms. Blooming for 2 months now. I'm impressed. They bloom much longer than any of my other poppies (somniferums and rhoes). My Iceland poppies are orange, yellow, and cream colored. They are mixed with a yellow meconopsis poppy from china and fabulous fire red snapdragons.

The weather this year is bizarre. The rest of the country is having the hottest summer ever. Pacific NW has had the coldest summer ever...still haven't hit 90 degrees! The result is extremely long blooming flowers. And interesting combinations of flowers that don't usually bloom at the same time. For example, lupines and foxgloves are still blooming like crazy (June blooming flowers) now adjacent to hydrangeas (August blooming here). But also our summer vegetables are way behind like tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, pumpkins, etc. Pic is of some snapdragons and Iceland poppies--took photo this morning. I started both from seed. (It took a long time for my snapdragons to bloom, but it was worth the wait. The scarlet colors with hints of orange are really stunning.)
