Poppies, My Pretties!

Poppies, Anenomies & Ranunculus: "And now, my beauties, something with poison in it, I think...but attractive to the eye, & soothing to the smell. Poppies… Poppies." ~Wicked Witch of the West (Wizard of Oz, 1939) “Through the dancing poppies stole a breeze most softly lulling to my soul.” ~John Keats (1795-1821) English Romantic poet. "Whose young & half transparent leaves scarce cast a shade, gray circles of anemones danced on their stalks." ~William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878) American poet.

Shirley Poppies - In the fall, after clearing beds of fallen leaves,sow these extravagantly (maybe add in a little larkspur) These seeds germinate in late winter, grow rapidly in the warmth of spring and produce unexpectedly showy flowers in May and June.
