Just today, a new poppy showed up in the garden and it's beautiful! It's so different and such a pretty pink.

These large "carnation" poppies are starting to grow on me. They are quite ornamental and fun!

These are the "peony" poppies which are much prettier, but very delicate.

The poppies were started from seed from Renee's Garden. They were rather difficult to start since the seeds are so small, you don't know if you're getting anywhere with them. Finally, in the early summer many of them germinated and had to be thinned out. Next year, I will relocate them against a fence where they can have more support.
