Poppies!

I tried to plant poppy seeds once a few years ago and they didn't take. For some reason, I never went out of my way to try any harder to grow a poppy plant. Then, last year, a pretty lemony petaled one invited me to take it home. I expected it to die. I'm not sure why. (Is there ever a plant that scares you off or one that you are sure will turn your green thumb black?) Well, my poppy came back this spring. And the sunlight in my front yard hits it just right to make that inviting color sing!
