Smiling Purses and Poppy Seeds!


JOY!

My friends, I have planted some flower seeds!  I have never grown poppies before but the poppy seeds that I have planted have come up and it looks like...with luck...we will have the tall red poppies soon! (The photo above is from a garden I visited a few years ago.)
I love the poppies in England but I have only seen them just the one time here in Georgia. Hopefully, I will have them in my own garden this summer!

THANK YOU to my newest follower, Anne! I have neglected to say thank you to my new followers and to anyone who follows my blog, so I may I say it now? THANK YOU! 

If I were to make a solemn speech in praise of you, in gratitude, in deep affection, you would turn an alarming shade of crimson and try to escape.  So I won't.  Take it all as said.
===================================
Today is my birthday! Richard and I will be off to climb Stone Mountain!  Wish me luck!

Richard gave me this CD for my birthday! I haven't listened to it yet, but you KNOW I will love it, right?

  2. Happy birthday kay, enjoy your walk. I grew California poppies the first year we were here in Georgia and have never been able to grow them again.

    1. Thanks, Connie! I also love sunflowers but I only enjoy them at my Dad's. The squirrels here let me grow them and then, they climb them and break off the large flower and take it away!
