Inspiring, indeed! If I'm not successful this year, I will not give up.

Now you DO know that the picture you posted is the ultimate...blue poppies at the Chelsea Flower Show. I hope to get there someday, too.

Thank you for this post! It made me smile! :-)

So interesting! I've never seen blue poppies.....

Is the background called wattling?

Enjoy reading your blog.....

Ohhhhhhhh, poppies pretty! Now that's true blue, isn't it? Hopefully Kylee will succeed this year with her blue poppies.

GG are you going to sow poppies this year? I've sown a few today allthough not blue ones.

Kate said...

These are beautiful - I am hoping if we all send good growing thoughts Kylee's way, her poppies are going to be lovely for her.


You are a sweetie GG!

By the way, Blogger playing up again - won't let me upload your link. Will keep trying)

You're welcome, Kylee! Good luck!

Hi Betty: I don't know, for sure! Thanks! I hope you'll come back!

Hi Kate...We want to see pictures on her blog! Thanks for coming over!

Hi B_S girl! Yep! I was (am)! You get to do something special for a 25th anniversary, don't you think?!

Hi ladyluz: Drat that blogger! Thanks, I hope it will work soon...glad to see you!

Well who wouldn't want blue poppies? Gorgeous, but I understand they only grow at high altitude (very high altitude!). I think cool summers are the secret, and that's hard for most of us to come by.

Hi lostroses: Indeed, but when has a good challenge stopped us gardeners...lol! There are always exceptions (my motto) and as our local extension agent says, "Plants don't read the literature."

Hi YE: How did I miss you?? Sorry! No, no poppies...so far. I did have some purple ones that had reseeded a couple years...but I see no sign of them. Perennial ones don't seem to do well...and you see the luck I am having with annual ones! However, I never say never...
