Getting There

A lot of buds have popped up around here lately.  We had a hailstorm Tuesday night, and I was afraid I'd lose a lot of these, but most survived.

Peony-- notice the ant on the right side?



Lots of poppies.

A few poppies are open.  Gorgeous!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Gorgeous poppies!! Mine died out, unfortunately. :-( But when I did have poppies, my favorite springs were when the purple iris and the California poppies bloomed at the same time. What a gorgeous combination! I think I need to try poppies again. The color is just so stunning!

  2. The poppies are beautiful! Wish I could have a flower/herb garden at this apartment.

    1. I lived in apts for several years and missed a garden too. As a matter-of-fact, my last one didn't even have a balcony so no potted plants either. Have to enjoy friends' and relatives' gardens.

  3. Your garden is amazing even before all those buds go wild!

  4. Poppies...Poppies...(said in my best Wicked Witch of the West voice!). They are just the coolest and I want some. I may secretly plant some this fall. lol

  5. You're going to have so many blooms soon. LOVE your photo of the poppy up close. I've never grown those before. Hugs!

  6. I guess we are getting there too but it's slow going, I was in Ohio and Michigan the past few days, what a big difference!
