Outdoor Wednesday! IT"S POPPY TIME!

It's Poppy Time!

We have to enjoy them while they last...

A few opened the other day,
the rest of them this morning.
(It rained all afternoon.)

Not that I complaining, I'm just saying,
it would be nice if the Poppies would
stick around for a few more days...

I'm off to visit
for
Outdoor Wednesday!

Robyn,
Those are just fabulous! We got rain last night too, although we needed it getting a bit dry. I do love those poppies, Cindy

Poppies are stunning!

I have not had any on our garden yet but it is something I aspire to have.

The color is worth it for even a few days, I think.

Yours are great.

Morning, Robyn, those poppies are GORGEOUS! Even if they only last for a little while, their beauty is worth it. I feel that way about azaleas too.

Mary said...

Robyn, I so love poppies. Yours are really gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your photos with us.

I'm with you - I have the most gorgeous red poppy; and with the rain it didn't last long enough this year to get a picture. Enjoy yours while they last. Sally

Oh Robyn, your poppies are so beautiful. I love the vibrant colors. Are they orange with a purple center? You are right about the plates, very retro indeed!....Christine

I love poppies also. But, I agree, they don't last long enough. Neither do peony's.

Poppies are so pretty. I have tried to paint them several times. For some reason, I've never had them in my garden but I should! A friend has a whole field of them mixed with blue bachelor's buttons... they are beautiful!

Oh, I just love poppies...these are so pretty..they must be like my tiny little violets...they bloom only about 2 weeks, once a summer, and then they are gone.
