The poppy is a nice white color. Stray cats always seem to get in my flowers.This year they haven"t been to bad.

This is the first time I've wintersowed anything but the Brilliant Red poppies... My luck, they will all turn out to be orange. ;) LOL Oh well, if they do, then there will be spots for them, too. :)

What a beautiful poppy! I have poppies for the first time, this year. So, far, all that have bloomed have been a beautiful pink, but I'm a little disappointed that they haven't been mixed colors, like I had planned.
